Many museums, tourism and heritage organisations offer a wide range of activities this summer. Their offer at ErfgoedApp is both playful and qualitative. Ideal for those who stay in their own country this summer, or who go in search of (un)known heritage close to home. There is something for everyone: family or treasure hunts, heritage games, do-exhibitions, listening games and much more. Today we present you with some tours along the Belgian coast.
On sea legs through Ostend
This walk takes you along the maritime past of the City by the Sea.
Starting and ending point: Casino Ostend
What grows on Permeke's canvas? Who lives in his paintings? Can you smell the sweaty feet of a hard worker? Can you overhear a funny conversation among the fishermen? During this tour you will see Ostend through Permeke's eyes. You will experience the artist's development, get to know Permeke's first steps in the art world and also get to know his many friends.
Location: Venetian Galleries
