History of Ostend
Ostend has come a long way from its roots as an unassuming fishing village. We’ve endured invasions from Vikings and the Spanish held territory here, using the city as a base during their battle to maintain sovereignty over the Dutch during their 80-year war for independence. It was Belgium’s first king Leopold I who first set up a British-style seaside resort in Ostend after taking his new nation’s throne in 1831. These days Ostend has a lively nightlife scene with plenty of good restaurants and a major shopping centre.
Modern Ostend is a haven for fashion lovers, holidaymakers, and celebrities which have included stars from Lord Byron to Albert Einstein. Casino Oostende is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. Marvin Gaye even shot his video for his legendary song “Sexual Healing” in the casino. Everyone is welcome in Casino Oostende with games and tables for all budgets and abilities.
