Every Saturday and Sunday (at 2 pm)
Every weekend, there are guided tours for individuals at Park Abbey. A guide takes you to the heart of the abbey under restoration. During the tour you are given a unique look behind the scenes of different sections of the building, such as the cloister, the chapter house, etc.
Every Wednesday (5-6 pm)
Peace Carillon concert
Every Wednesday evening from 5 to 6 p.m., Luc Rombouts, coordinator and driving force behind the Peace Carillon, plays a suitable, varied repertoire on the peace(ful) instrument. The carillonneur will also play a few requests during his weekly performances. There may also be additional performances for special occasions.
16, 23, 30.6 & 7.7.19
Thanks to the recent realization of the Peace Carillon in Park Abbey, 'Leuven Bells' can offer summer concerts on four carillons. A carillon festival on 4 different towers is absolutely unique!
Park Abbey will be the place to be on 4 Sundays. Luc Rombouts opens the series of four concerts on 16 June. Koen Cosaert follows on 23 June, Geert D’hollander comes on 30 June and Arie Abbenes ends this series on 7 July. Concerts start at 3 pm and last +/- an hour. As always, access is free!

This is not a collection
A child Jesus that moves, spiritual medicines, liturgical toys... Over the centuries, people have expressed their faith in various ways, trying to make the intangible tangible. The resulting heritage is highly diverse.
Taking a fresh and contemporary approach, PARCUM gives us a closer look at this multifaceted religious heritage. This is not a collection (3.07.2019 – 3.11.2019) sets masterpieces, exceptional items and everyday pieces from its own collection alongside the work of contemporary artists Guillaume Bijl, David Claerbout, Berlinde De Bruyckere and Ria Pacquée.
