Zeebrugge (meaning "sea landing) is a harbour-town on the coast of Belgium, a subdivision of Bruges, for which it is the modern port. It serves as an international Port and a seafront resort with hotels, cafés and beach. Zeebrugge has been instrumental in Brugge's reinvigoration as a city, which unfortunately lost its harbor to silting hundreds of years ago. The construction of the new seaport at Zeebrugge began at the turn of the 20th century and the city's reputation as an art and tourist center for Northern Europe began its revival. The marina is also Belgium’s most important fishing port, and the wholesale fish market located there is one of the largest in Europe. Aside from being a passenger port with ferries to the UK, the harbour serves as the central port for Europe's automotive industry and is important for the importation, handling and storage of energy products, agriculture products and other general cargo.
The terminal is situated at the outer dock (Buitenhaven), Leopold II Dam (Havendam). In Zeebrugge follow the signs 'Zone 1', 'Car ferries' and 'P&O Ferries/Hull'.
