From Brussels: Medieval Leuven Walking Tour

1. From Brussels: Medieval Leuven Walking Tour

Let your guide take you on a breathtaking walk through the ancient heart of Leuven. You can't miss the most beautiful city hall of Belgium, the largest beguinage in Flanders, the ancient cloth hall, the impressive university library, and so much more. You'll also stop by the tomb of Father Damien, the patron of lepers who was recently beatified. You'll see quite a lot with your guide, but you'll also get free time to experience the city your way. Don't forget that paying a visit to the unique "Old Market" area is like pulling up a chair at the longest bar in Europe. The area's many catering establishments have always been Leuven's meeting place par excellence, especially in warm weather.

From Brussels: Leuven Day Trip by Train

2. From Brussels: Leuven Day Trip by Train

The university town of Leuven is known for its youthful atmosphere. Although it's smaller and not as well known as cities like Bruges and Ghent, it's definitely worth exploring this beautiful Flemish city and seeing what it has to offer.  At 10 AM leave Brussels and head towards Leuven, a 30-minute journey away by train. Visit Leuven's Grote Markt and Plaza where you'll find the imposing Church of San Pedro and the famous Town Hall, a masterpiece of Gothic Brabantino. Be amazed by what is perhaps the longest bar in the world in the Oude Markt. See a major school and impressive library, rebuilt after World War II. At the end of the visit, enjoy some free time to eat and see the city at your leisure. Make some purchases or try a Stella Artois, the headquarters being located in Leuven. Your guide will provide you a return train ticket back to Brussels and you can return when you wish.
