Hangtime

1,000 square metres of trampolines, a giant ball pool and a challenging play area for the little ones, combined with an inspiring coffee bar; that is Hangtime!

Besides the regular trampolines, there are a lot of extras: basket baskets, dodgeball trampolines, foampits,…

For the little ones there is a challenging play area, built by De Van Hut. This zone is not a pre-prepared bite in bright colours, but a place for discovery.

Fly yoga and bungee dancing will be added to the offerings.

Fort Napoleon

Fort Napoleon was the setting for hundreds of years of history. The French were afraid to wait for the English, German soldiers used the impenetrable pentagon as a buffer against the Allies and Ostend rascals made their first love there. Few can still tell the story, but the broad walls of Fort Napoleon, which were silent witnesses to every laugh, tear and kiss in the fort. Time to let them speak in a completely renewed exhibition. Whispering, actually.

Discover the brand new story trail along the history of the fortress. Each time with the idea: “What if the walls could talk?” If you stand close enough to the immense stone walls, you will hear familiar and less familiar voices recounting what went on here. Bakers whose flour was stolen so soldiers could go to the girls of pleasure. The chilly misery of winters at the fort. Or the sneaky dates of our own Easterners. The light projections around the listening points make for the perfect Instagram photo. For children there is an adapted tour. Listening, whispering, enjoying the peace and amazed at the impressive architecture of the monument.

Fort Napoleon is easily accessible via the free ferry service or public transport. Parking is also provided. Afterwards, you can always visit the many new shops and eating places in Oosteroever. Enjoy the beautiful street art of The Crystal Ship or take a breath of fresh air on the beach. But don’t forget to tell your own stories at the walls of the fortress. Who knows, maybe one day they’ll whisper it.
