Sint-Petrus-and-Paulus Church

Sint-Petrus-and-Paulus ChurchThis beautiful Neo-Gothic church in Ostend was built between 1899 and 1908. It was constructed on the ashes of the previous church that occupied the site and is modeled after Cologne Cathedral and Vienna's Votivkirche.

Next to the church you can see an older tower, the Peperbusse. This is a remainder of the former church that stood here and was destroyed by fire. The first stone of this tower was laid in 1478, it now houses a small museum.
