There are few other places in Flanders that appeal more to the imagination than this exuberant university town. Are you interested in shopping or cultural activities, enjoying gastronomical pleasures or admiring art, visiting ancient buildings or viewing modern architecture? Whatever you are looking for in a city, can be found in Leuven. A people-friendly city with a small-town feel, but completely in pace with a rapidly changing society. Leuven is situated right in the centre of Belgium. Its easy accessibility is an advantage. But there are many more good reasons to visit the "Jewel of the River Dyle". You will soon find out: this city will never let you go.
