  • 1. Good walking shoes

Leuven is a small city. Everything is within walking distance. Ideal for exploring in a walk or a stroll. Be kind to your feet and put on easy walking shoes. You can swap them in the evening for a comfortable alternative when you head out into Leuven’s nightlife.

  • 2. Face mask

We would all have preferred that it wasn’t necessary, but as long as COVID-19 is in the country, you should have a face mask handy. In some places, wearing a face mask is mandatory, while in other locations it is strongly recommended. The signage in the city will help you with this.

  • 3. City map

The city plan of Leuven: the ideal guide during your journey of discovery in Leuven! Discover picturesque places, peaceful spots, great eateries and much more besides. Did you know that you can pick up the map free of charge at the reception desk of Visit Leuven?

  • 4. Tickets for cycling tours

  • 5. Drinking bottle

Leuven is a sustainable destination. We are doing everything we can to reduce the ecological footprint of the city. For example, by focusing on natural sources of energy. As a visitor, you too can contribute to this by avoiding plastic bottles or drinks cans and bringing your refillable drinks bottle instead.
