Lovely Leuven: guided biketour
You are in Leuven for a congress, or some business. In the evening you have spare time. But you would like to take this opportunity to see the best places of the city you are currently in.
So then the best you can do is contact me and participate in the biketour. In 2,5 hour you can get an overall idea of Leuven, I can show you the highlights, but also the secret corners, tell you fascinating stories about the past and the future. You will go to be impressed and want to come back to show this city to your friends and family.
You happen to be in Brussels or another place in Belgium and you want to go on a nice trip, but you don't know where to go nor what to do.
Bruges and Ghent are lovely cities, but they are completely different from LEUVEN. Our history with the university (actually students from more than 100 different countries) makes that we still have more than 300 buildings of the university integrated in our medieval city and a green big castle garden with wild river and beautiful bridges and forests.
With the Stella-Artois brewery in our city, founded in 1366 and more than 600 (!) years old, now the biggest beer company of the world (AB INBEV) we are proud to be the Beer Capital of the World.
Belgians most beautiful buildings are without a doubt not in Ghent or Bruges, but in LEUVEN. So don't miss this. By train you are in 25 minutes in Brussels, there are trains every day until midnight (30 min to Liege, 90 min to Bruges, 60 min to Ghent, 50 min to Antwerp and 15 min to Brussels National Airport). Are BIKETOURS start before the LEUVEN railway station (bagage storage in the central railway tunnel).
Share your pictures of LEUVEN with you friends and the go to be jealous that when they where in Belgium, they only visited Brussels, Bruges and Ghent, and not Leuven ;)
Nice shopping streets and modern architecture are together with more than 400 bars and restaurants (a lot cheaper than in Brussels because the big student population) beautifully integrated in a wonderful medieval city setting.
Together we go on our way for a fascinating ride from 2h30 along world famous buildings, cozy squares, romantic boats, white fairytale cottages, beautiful medieval streets that still look the same as 500 years ago. At each stop your guide can tell you about special secrets and interesting stories.
Did you know for example that the unfinished church tower on the main square to this day still would have been the highest church tower in the world! That Leuven in the 15th century was greater than Paris, Brussels, Cologne...
Entertainment and fun
Entertainment and enjoyment are paramount during this tour. On the trip wait a nice surprise and we keep a short break (15 min). Anyone who wants can take a drink or wander around in the beautiful streets of the UNESCO site the Grand Beguinage. You can imagine yourself here in the 15th century....
Glow and lights
This tour takes place in the evening because many beautiful buildings are fantastic under the beautiful light of the sunset.
