Statues in the city - Knokke-Heist (Belgium)

Welcome!

Statues in the City is an umbrella term for art in public places that you can discover throughout the city of Knokke-Heist.

There are more than thirty artworks spread all over the seaside resort Knokke-Heist: historic statues, memorial statues and commissioned works. Very diverse materials have been used: stone, bronze, iron, synthetic material and so on.

Discovering these unique works one at the time is a pleasant way to explore our seaside resort. You can do this with or without the (digital) route at hand.  During summer, the course can also be completed onboard a small tourist train, with commentary provided by an expert guide.  

This website offers primary schools from Knokke-Heist the necessary tools to participate in our godparent project. Students and teachers from the 5th and 6th year of primary school will be able to organise projects on a statue that they will adopt for the duration of one school year.
