7x romance in Leuven

February is the most romantic month of the year. Our Facebook fans have suggested the following tips to set your lover’s heart aflame in Leuven.


1. Climb up the tower of the University Library and enjoy the amazing view of the city. Not as romantic as you’d hoped? One day, an alumnus of the university popped the question there to his girlfriend. And the answer was… YES! 

2. Take a stroll hand in hand and discover the hidden seduction of Leuven. Or rent a bike and make it a sporting trip. 

3. Spend a romantic night in one of Leuven’s hotels. Some hotels even offer a special package, with champagne, rose petals on your bed or a sauna! You won’t be able to create such a lovely ambience at home. Book your stay at Martin’s Klooster or go on a dinner date in Pentahotel. At Gasthof De Pastorij and hotel Mille Colonnes you will be spoiled with a bottle of bubbles in the room

4. Buy ‘Love-chocolates’ by Bittersweet. Or indulge your senses at one of the other Leuven chocolatiers. After all, it’s for a good cause, right?

5. Order your take-away menu at one of the Leuven restaurants. Many have developed a special Valentine's menu. Treat yourself and support the Leuven hospitality industry.

6. Our Facebook fans apparently think a verdant setting is the best place for romance. They suggested a number of well-known and lesser-known green hotspots in Leuven. Discover Ramberg Park or Dijlepark with just the two of you. Or visit the familiar highlights: Great Beguinage, Arenberg Park or Keizersberg Abbey.

7. Can you think of a more romantic place to get married than the most beautiful town hall in the world? Unfortunately only locals enjoy this amazing privilege. But visitors can take a seat on one of the benches opposite the town hall and watch the newly-weds as they pose for photos in front of it.
