Coming from Leuven train station

  • Exit Leuven train station through the main entrance.
  • Take Bondgenotenlaan to the city center. This is the main road in front of the train station.
  • Walk to the Grote Markt, located at the end of Bondgenotenlaan.
  • Take Naamsestraat going up to the left from Grote Markt.
  • Take second street on your left, this is Lakenweversstraat.
  • After 100 meters, turn right into Sint-Michielsstraat, continuing to nbr 6.

By plane

In the Brussels Airport (Zaventem), take the train to Leuven (about 16 minutes), not Louvain-la-Neuve! You'll find trains for Leuven by searching for: Leuven or Landen. From Leuven station, proceed as mentioned above.

Another airport close to Leuven is the Brussels South Charleroi Airport. From Charleroi Airport you have to take a bus Brussels City Shuttle to Brussels-South train station and then take the train to Leuven.

By train

Leuven is well situated in the Belgium train system. Hence, you have trains going to Leuven every half hour or every hour, depending from where you come. Notice that Belgium is a bilingual country, and depending on the part of the country you are in, names of places change. The French name of Leuven is Louvain. So in the French speaking part, you have to catch a train to Louvain (IMPORTANT: Do NOT take the train to Louvain-La-Neuve or Louvain-La-Neuve-Universite. This is another city!) instead of Leuven.

The German railway company provides a user-friendly search page in English, French, Italian, and German. The search page knows about Belgian train connections and is far more user-friendly than the Belgian railway site.

Both Luik/Liège/Lüttich and Brussels are reachable by ICE and Thalys. In either city, you can take an IC train directly to Leuven/Louvain.

Brussels has a direct Eurostar connection to London.

By taxi or bus from train station

At Leuven station, you can take a taxi (this will cost between 10 and 15 € and will take 5-10 minutes).

You can also take bus number 2 in the direction "Heverlee Campus". Get off on the first stop on Naamsestraat and proceed as before.
