Leuven, small town big city | Linde

Linde | Bakery Korst

Linde owns the Korst bakery in Hal 5. She has her own personal take on bread, and on food in general. At Korst, she searches for a new formula for a centuries-old craft. The result? Delicious sourdough bread. It is no coincidence that her bakery is in Leuven; after wandering all over Europe, Linde chose this place because she can collaborate with BoerEnCompagnie, a community-supported agricultural cooperative, and use the local products it provides. And because she found a space in Hall 5: empty, historic railway halls that were transformed into a vibrant, urban, sustainable place to meet others and to settle down.

Leuven, small town big city


Leuven is a small town with big city vibes. That makes Leuven unique. The convenience and cosiness of a small town on the one hand, and the creativity, versatility, and diversity of a metropolis on the other hand. Leuven is small in size, but large in what it offers to in terms of nightlife, shopping, art, and culture. You’ll find them all in Leuven.
