Westfront Nieuwpoort is the visiting centre that was built under the King Albert I monument. The floodgates in Nieuwpoort played a crucial role in the course of World War I. Westfront Nieuwpoort tells this story in an interactive way. You reach the entrance via a long ramp on which you may need help. Inside there is more than enough circulation space. There is a desk that accommodates wheelchairs and all the data carriers and interactive elements are well visible and usable from the wheelchair. There is an easily accessible toilet. You can visit the panorama of the Albert I monument with the elevator. At the top, you may need help on a short but steeply sloping surface. The parapet blocks a good view on the landscape from the wheelchair.
