Probst is well know for making these panoramic views of European cities.

In 1729 the city was completely rebuilt after the siege of 1600-1604.  Ostend was then still under Spanish control.

By the peace treaties of Utrecht and Rastatt in 1713/14 ending the war, the Southern Netherlands returned to the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy forming the Austrian Netherlands.
