The ancient city of Leuven supports an old Catholic university and offers interesting architecture, botanical gardens, and great breweries. Like many destinations in Belgium, it's best to explore the city on bike. Its small historical center can easily be navigated during a day trip from Bruges or Brussels, but the bar and restaurant scene--which are active thanks to a creative student population--can entertain you for much longer. Itineraries in Leuven can include some remarkable gastronomical tours and even more intriguing pubs. Leuven is in Flemish Brabant Province. Make Leuven central to your Belgium travel plans using our Belgium trip planner.
