Leuven is a dynamic city surrounded by breathtaking countryside. It is small enough (35,000 residents within the old city walls, plus 30,000 students), safe, vibrant, and an architectural treasure, full of student life, art, intellect and an active nightlife. By train, Leuven is 20 minutes from Brussels, 2 hours from Paris and 3 hours from London.
