Ostend, Belgium

During the 2016 trip I visited Stp Tirpitz which is now an enormous museum located near Ostend, Belgium in the town of Raversyde. The museum is both indoors and outdoors and beautifully preserved.

Plan on spending at least four hours or more here to get the full effect.

If your driving from France take the A16 motorway (highway) which will take you past Dunkirk and will then turn into the E40 when you pass the border into Belgium. You will take a left at the road junction at the N369 then head West until it merges into the N325, you will turn left when it merges into the N324. There is a roundabout here which will take you straight past the museum on the N318, don’t take this there is no entry from this direction. Instead at the roundabout take a right to the street named Nieuwpoortsesteenweg, this will lead you directly to the museum parking lot.

It gets very hot here in the summertime and the museum does not serve refreshments, so please make sure you bring plenty of water to drink.. There is a tremendous amount of walking at this location so be prepared. I spent about four hours on my July 2016 visit but could have stayed all day. There is also a nice restaurant on the premises called Walrave, that’s also worth a visit on the way out.

If you need supplies before or after visiting the museum there is also plenty of shopping at the city of Middlerke or Ostend, both of which are located close by.
