    Place with lots of good restaurants where you can park your car. Then the Park and the Castle, right to follow the Dyle during 2-3 km and you reach the Beguinage just by the sportkot on the other side of the ring.

    lovely old building and very beautiful garden, just outside Leuven city and in the vicinity of some tasty restaurants. Nice picture location

    The castle is not too great, but doing a nice impression. Every day's for the local University, so the emptiness you cannot complain about (of course lots of bicycles). Around a lot of greenery, water-that is a nice place to walk and relax.

    A beautiful castle with an even more beautiful park outside. A great and calm place.

    The castle at the river. It's the whole park that makes it very nice. Perfect spot for a picnic.

    The castle is surrounded by a very beautiful park, also art of the Arenberg family possessions. It was built around the 16th century and is now the seat of the Faculty of Architecture of KUL. Interiors are open to the public (ask the secretariat).

    Nice castle that is now part of the university. Great for a nice walk or to get some exercise.
