The longest tram route in the world

The coastal tram route at the Belgian coastline is the longest one in the world. The tram connects 68 consecutive stops between the cities De Panne and Knokke-Heist. A total of 67 kilometers, that's almost 42 Miles. On the route, the trams almost never lose sea view and every day a vacuum cleaner tram is needed to suck the sand off its rails. The tram route is over 130 years old.

In summer, the coastal tram runs every 10 minutes in winter every 20 minutes. In spring and autumn holidays and on national holidays there is a coastal tram every fifteen minutes.
