Art, culture and musea


Art lovers are well catered for in Knokke-Heist.

This town has always had a special attraction for artists, architects, sculptors and painters. Knokke-Heist invests in art, and you’ll find art in some unexpected corners: ‘Dune’ by Arne Quinze, for example, an arch built over the entrance to an underground car park, or 'Hospitality', which is better known as Flanagan’s 'Hare' at the end of the Sea Dike.

Furthermore, you can enjoy incredible international works, from Appel to Zadkine, in more than eighty five art galleries.

A must in cultural experience is undoubtedly the cultural centre of Knokke-Heist, Scharpoord. The programme covers a wide spectrum, ranging from stage art to fine arts, and from artistic workshops to open-air entertainment.
