Leuven is a very popular tourist destination in Belgium because of its beautiful structures and appeal to young adults. One of the few cities in the world with the label “student city,” Leuven’s population bursts during the school year with most of the locals during term times being students.
Leuven’s popularity is mostly due to the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven which is the oldest Catholic university still in operation. But the presence of students has made the place a lot livelier, spawning an interesting nightlife and other historical attractions.
The most popular tourist attraction in Leuven is the Town Hall. Featuring a beautiful gothic architecture, some parts of the structure were built as early as mid-1400s. Another popular structure is the St. Peter’s Church which features a totally unique architecture but still featuring the beautiful Romanesque design. Other attractions are St. Anthony’s Chapel, the Linen-Hall and the Totem.

Finding the perfect holiday home in Leuven is very easy and economical. Many of the structures available for weekly accommodation are inexpensive and the often provide easy access to the university and the Town Hall.
