Leuven has many hidden green areas, remnants of the inner city wall here and there, but you have to know where to look for them. And, of course, there is some artwork as well. This article is a suggestion for a walk through Leuven in Belgium to discover some of them.
- This article is an itinerary.
This itinerary focuses on the southern side of the city. It starts in the center on the steps of the magnificent city hall. 3 churches are visited as all 3 have something noteworthy to mention.
As in Ad’s Path some of Ad Wouters’ artwork is mentioned. The main theme here is rather the historic city wall, on which restoration works are finally being started. An attempt was also made to lead you through the green areas and parks. The walk ends in Park Abbey, worthy of a visit in its own right.
Leuven, can be easily accessed by train, bus or car. If you’re flying, Brussels Airport (BRU IATA) is where you’ll want to land: it’s just 13 minutes away from Leuven by local train. See Leuven#Get in for more details.
