Just an average train station. Does not offer so much direct routes to travel. However, connects Leuven to the rest of the Europe. Randered a lot for free wifi.

Leuven train station is a good representative of the efficient public transport system of Belgium. Tickets are available to buy both from ticket machines and over the counter. Train schedules—arrival and departure—are clearly announced on strategically located monitors. Even occasional delays are indicated on real-time.

Nothing special about the station. There are regular trains to Brussels so its a much better option then the bus.

there are trains, platforms, people and a vending machine or two. You can buy tickets, take a train and ask people for the time. There are announcements in Dutch, and sometimes French. Trains come, trains go. Look for the platform numbers, can you find them all?

I use this station all the time when I am in Leuven. It connects one to all parts of Belgium and even to Germany, Holland and via Brussels to France and other places. One needs to be able to use stairs in many cases, however.

The recently reconstructed railway station of Leuven is offering a mix of history and modern architecture. Many and frequent connections, including twice per hour to Brussels airport (13 minutes ride only), are making this station an attractive way of visiting Leuven

The Leuven Train Station was our home base for several days during our recent stay. We used the station several times for day trips to and from the surrounding areas. We found the station staff helpful and friendly, the board easy to understand. The station has a series of elevators to help you get from one track to the other...it... More

So pleased with their renovations. They took long enough but it was worth the wait! The building looks pretty neat, railways easily accessible. The tracks and the platforms are from decent quality too. You have just the right amount of snack bars and the information about hours and incoming/leaving trains is clear!
