It is also conveniently connected by rail to all other major places of interest in Belgium, including Brussels (15min), Ghent (1 hr), Bruges (1.5hr) and the North sea coast (2hr). Leuven itself is very family friendly (everybody bikes !), with lots of small-scale and open-air bistros. A city that enjoys life !

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Our house is only 10 min bike-ride away from the historic city of Leuven, which also connects very easily by train to all other major cities in Belgium. From Leuven station, Paris or Amsterdam or only 1h30 min away by fast train (TGV).
Leuven itself is a biking paradise, and it also connects to a very well organised regional biking netwerk ("knooppunten") , with over 1000 km of biking trails.
Located at the Flemish/Walloon border, it easily connects as well to several major hiking trails ("GR-routes").
Below we give you a flavor of one of the best adresses when it comes to gastronomie, bistro's, or fashion.
