Introducing Leuven

Intimate and lively, Leuven (Louvain in French) is an ancient capital, a prominent brewing centre and Flanders’ oldest university town. In term-time some 25,000 students give the city an upbeat, creative air. The picturesque central core is small enough that you could easily see the sights in a short day trip, but characterful pubs and good-value dining could keep you here for weeks.
