Full description

Find out what Leuven would have been like in the 1500s when it was one of the most important cities in medieval Europe during a self-guided audio walking tour. Begin in Grote Markt, where you’ll see some of the most gorgeous and impressive buildings in Belgium.

Among them is Saint Peter’s Church, which was very nearly the world’s tallest building, and the historical Leuven Town Hall with its 236 statuettes. Discover parts of the largest, oldest, and most prominent university in Belgium, KU Leuven University Hall.

While you walk through the city center, see Saint Anthony’s Chapel where Father Damien (one of the ten best-known Belgians of all time) is buried, and the impressive Saint Michael’s Church.

Stroll down the “longest bar in Europe,” Leuven Oude Markt. Pass by Domus Brewery, where authentic Belgian beer is traditionally brewed. Find a giant bug impaled by a 25-meter pole and Learn about the university library that was burnt down and rebuilt twice. 

Admire (from the outside) M Leuven, an art museum that houses a collection of Gothic sculptures and 15th and 19th-century paintings by various artists.

You'll also get recommendations on plenty of places to pull up a seat on a terrace and enjoy a relaxing drink or lunch (not included).

You simply walk down the broad street called Bondgenotenlaan until it ends at the open square called Rector De Somerplein. Cross the road and you will enter the Grote Markt. If you’re arriving in Leuven by bus, you need to get off at the Rector De Somerplein bus stop.
