Hop on the train and travel a mere 30 minutes east of Brussels and wind up in this enchanting university town. Leuven (Louvain in French) is teeming with interesting places to visit. A five-minute walk from the station sets you in the middle of the Grote Markt where you'll find the architecturally divine Stadhuis (Town Hall) and St Pieterskerk (church). The Museum Vander Kelen-Mertens is a great stop for art-buffs, and the city doesn't lack for great places to dine. Try some of the eateries on Parijsstraat, which runs parallel with the Oude Markt, or visit the upscale restaurant Il Pastaio for a tasty pasta with scampi. Final suggestion—don't forget to visit the Groot Begijnhof or abbey.
Leuven / Louvain is a charming small city not far from Brussels. It is a student city - the university is one of the oldest in the world. Beautiful old buildings, nice town squares with excellent cafés, pubs and restaurants. Vibrant night-life, a lot of interesting shops. Don't miss the "Beguinenhof", the oldest quarter in town with beautiful, well-preserved buildings from the Middle Ages - quite a world apart!
Leuven is really one of Belgium's hidden gems. It is a beautiful medieval student town. We saw the great market square and the old beguinage. There were lots of restaurants and prices were very reasonable. The place feels very young as you see a lot of students.
Also it is the home town of "Stella" (the beer of course)
which was a good excuse to enjoy the local beers.
We felt it didn't have the tourist crowds like Bruges or Brussels which is always a big plus.
