Exploring Ostend-Bruges International Airport will be a breeze once you've organized your rental car. But before you land in a new and unfamiliar place, it's always a good idea to have a little basic info about the area.
Once you've collected your suitcase from the luggage carousel at Ostend-Bruges International Airport, get set to hop into the driver's seat of your rental car and head into Bruges. The central area is located 15 miles east of the airport.
Head straight from the runway to Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. This attraction is one of the main reasons travelers stop here. Fort Napoleon is worth stepping out of the car for too. Once you've crossed those off your must-see list, take a moment to swing by the Atlantic Wall Open Air Museum.
If you're here on a prolonged stopover, don't spend the entire time stuck in Ostend-Bruges International Airport. You really ought to leave the terminal, venture 4 miles to Lille and soak up the Palace of Fine Arts, a well-loved attraction.
