Highlights and Hidden Corners

This city walk combines several must see sites of Leuven with some of the town's more surprising hidden corners.

Leuven has been known by many names: the oldest university town in the Low Countries, the Beer capital, the Best city of Brabant, and the City on the Dyle. Throughout its life, a number of historical figures, including Napoleon and Joséphine, Stephen Hawking and Bernard Montgomery, visited this famous and unique city and gazed in wonder at the wonder that is its fifteenth century town hall, the Great Beguinage (UNESCO World Heritage site), and the monumental libraries. Follow in their footsteps and discover why Justus Lipsius described this place as the "Pride of Belgium"!
 
Leuven, however, is also a modern city with an eye towards the future. Soak in the lively atmosphere on the Old Market while sipping a drink in one of the numerous cozy cafés, dodge the countless students breathlessly biking between classes, or relax in one of the city's many green oases.

Yet, these famous sites are only the beginning. Join us for a deep dive into Leuven's best hidden gems, as surprises lurk within every passageway and behind every closed door.

Leuven. Centuries old ... modern and vibrant!
