Leuven

(3.6/5 based on 4,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, parks, historic sites
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. Find what you're looking for from your Leuven holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Belgium itinerary builder.
