Experience Leuven with the kids
Leuven has a great deal to offer children and young people. We’d like to highlight these new activities for the spring half-term holiday.
All activities are completely “COVID-19-proof”. However, please note that you must book in advance.
A church visit has never been so captivating
It’s amazing how many fascinating stories there are to be told about a church! Collect your activity booklet from M Leuven and explore Saint Peter’s Church with fun tasks created for the whole family. There is a booklet for children aged between four and six years, and one for those aged between seven and 99.
Put on a pair of smart 3D glasses and bring the art treasures in Saint Peter’s Church to life. It’s incredible, you can even take a seat at the table in The Last Supper by Dieric Bouts. And have you heard the city legend about Fiere Margriet? Well, she’ll give you an account of it herself.
On a quest for stories
Leuven is bursting with weird and wonderful stories. But you have to hunt them down. Use your smartphone to find six locations in the city. Once you arrive, scan the code at each one and listen to the funny, spellbinding and moving tales. The voices will probably sound familiar. Can you guess who they are?
Leuven’s nightlife is famous, even infamous. This walking route, specially devised for young people, takes you past those iconic places that still provide sensational stories to this very day. Set off on a journey of discovery along both intimate and wild dance floors, as well as dark and brightly-lit façades. What do you need? A smartphone and headphones or earbuds.
