The longest tramline in the world

The tramway along the Belgian North Sea coast is the longest single tram line in the world. It runs almost the entire length of the Belgian coast.

The tramway was built in 1985, it’s 67 km (42 miles) long and it takes you back and forth from the coastal city of Knokke in the east (close to the Dutch border) to De Panne in the west (near the French border). It’s a great way to explore the Belgian coast, with a few gorgeous stretches close to the seafront. In summertime, the coastal tram (line 0) runs every 10 minutes, in wintertime it’s every 20 minutes. It will take you about 143 minutes to do the entire route. In need of some fresh air? There are 68 stops so you can hop on and hop off about every kilometer.
