A new, interactive walk will be launched at the same time as the reopening of the Ensor House and the opening of the experience centre.

The app enables users to take a walk through the city guided by Ensor himself. Throughout the walk, he talks about himself, his friends and Ostend’s rich history.

The trip starts at the Ensor House, taking you to 13 different places. There is unique audio and visual material available for each of these places. 

The app is available in five languages (Dutch, French, English, German and Spanish) and can be downloaded for free from the App Store. You pay a one-off fee of 5 euros to unlock the entire walk. The walk is free when you visit the James Ensor House. We are currently developing a separate children’s walk.
