Tips from manager Karlien

Karlien has her own business in Mechelsestraat, Leuven’s most fashionable shopping street. She’ll take you on a tour of her neighbourhood by bike. Saddle up!

"I love to going to Optimist. Pure enjoyment with friends on the terrace after cycling or shopping."

Karlien shows you round the Vismarkt:

  • When the sun’s shining, you can bask on the terrace of the De Blauwe Kater.

  • On Friday evenings Karlien checks into Optimist for a snack and a drink with her girlfriends.

  • Leuven’s packed full of delightful cafés and original shops, just take a look. And there’s no better place to end a day’s shopping or cycling than the Vismarkt.

Want to stay near one of Karlien’s favourite places? Book a room at Ibis Leuven Centrum or Logies Vitale. Both are just a 5-minute walk from Vismarkt.
