Leuven Guide

In the middle of Belgium’s central province of Flemish Brabant lies Leuven, or Louvain, the capital of the region. About 100,000 inhabitants live in the city, which is nationally recognized as a university city. Over 50,000 students attend the local Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, ensuring a younger than average population within Leuven. The city’s prestigious university was founded in the early 15th century. Leuven has had a turbulent history, with the settlement in the heart of what is now Belgium being under French and Dutch rule for periods in the 18th and 19th centuries. The city’s central attraction is the historic town hall, whose late Gothic facades were built as early as the 15th century. Directly at the Grote Markt you can discover other photogenic Gothic buildings – the Sint Pieterskirche and the Tafelrond. With the Museum M, Leuven also has a modern art gallery with historical art from the 15th to the 18th century. Among the most beautiful buildings of the local university are the library and the ornate Arenberg Castle.
