Leuven for Travel Press
Welcome in Leuven
City on a human scale. In the heart of Belgium and all its own.
The century-old university town with its historic buildings and young dynamic radiates the 21st century. In the pedestrian streets and one the cozy squares, the students determine the rhythm and atmosphere, the shops, cafés and restaurants provide conviviality and gastronomy, the beer fizzes and the ideas bubble up. Surrounded and intertwined by green, and with its rich varied cultural offering, Leuven is worth a visit all year round.
