From the train station, walk into town via the big shopping street Bondgenotenlaan (you’ll see the city hall at the end of this street). Take the first street left (Koning Leopoldstraat), then first left (Bogaardenstraat) and second left (Ravenstraat). A good 5 minutes walk. If you are arriving by train, when buying your ticket please note that we are in the city of Leuven and not in our sister city Louvain-la-Neuve which is 30km away.By car: on the Leuven ring road, drive into town at the crossroad "Tiensepoort". Take the second right (at the traffic lights), then first left (Bogaardenstraat) and first right (Ravenstraat). Parking on the street or in Parking Ladeuze (paying: 10 EUR/24h).


24 hours cancellation.
