Dunkerque tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Dunkerque is an industrial port with oil refineries, dockyards and steel works that dot the skyline.  However, its Flemish influence and fantastic Musee d'Art Contemporain save it. 

A good place to start is the Place du Minck where you'll hear the cries of fisherman selling their freshly caught fish.  You'll then be in the mood to further investigate Dunkerque's maritime theme with a trip to the Musee Portuaire - housed in a former tobacco factory. 

Boat trips also depart from the Place du Minck enabling you to appreciate France's third largest port from a different vantage point.

In the old town you'll find a statue of one of Dunkerque's seafaring heroes, John Bart, a 17th century privateer who looted English and Dutch ships and who lies buried in Eglise St-Eloi.
