Our Neighbourhood

Our home is in the center of Leuven. Central Leuven is easilly covered on foot. It's heart is the "Grote Markt" with the gothic city hall and cathedral. Immediately behind it you can find the "Oude Markt", also called the world's biggest bar, which transforms into one big open-air terrace on sunny days. Leuven is Belgium's oldest university town and also the "beer-capital". You find also the cobblestoned " Groot Begijnhof", a Unesco World Heritage site in our city center.

Leuven is a very lively city. Culture and art are everywhere, worth a visit is the new "Museum M" (www.mleuven.be)
The first four fridays of July there are free music-concerts at diverse locations ("Het groot verlof").

Leuven is only 25 km from Brussels (22 min by train) and the hilly Ardennes are just around the corner. Other places in Belgium are easy to reach from here (by car or by train):
- Antwerp: 50 km - 45 min by train
- Brugge: 130 km - 1h25 by train
- Gent: 118 km - 1h by train
- Ieper with flanders fields (battlefields of WWI): 155 km
- Namur: 60 km
- La Roche: 60 km
- Spa: 117 km

Leuven is also in the hearth of Europe so some big European cities are only a few hours away (by train (Thalys, Eurostar) or car):
- Amsterdam: 220 km - 1h50 with Thalys
- Luxembourg: 207 km
- Paris: 338 km - 1h25 with Thalys
- London: 395 km - 1h51 with Eurostar
- Köln: 192 km - 1h50 with Thalys or ICE
