Surroundings

Knokke-Heist and its surroundings have much to offer.

First there is the fashionable centre where famous labels have their shops. There are also bistros, restaurants and al fresco terraces where you can find relaxation and enjoyment.

The magnificent beach with its many beach-bars is an ideal place for sunbathers! But it is also a lovely place in winter to enjoy a peaceful walk and the fresh air.

The pristine Zwin nature reserve, also known as the ‘international bird airport’, can be found 5km from the hotel. On the beach in the Zwin, you can search for ancient shark teeth or sign up at any of the adventure courses across the dunes.

You can explore the vast polders and small villages next to Knokke by bicycle. Alternatively, you can visit Sluis, Damme or the historic and world-renowned Bruges. Bruges is a well-preserved medieval town that is listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Art and culture lovers can immerse themselves in the many art galleries, the annual photo festival, the comedy festival, the Sincfala museum in Heist and the war museum in Ramskapelle.
