Concessionary fare of 7 euro into Brussels on a quiet, clean and rapid journey. Trains roughly every half hour.

This station has just been refurbished and is very attractive as are a lot of Belgian stations. It looks very pretty when lit up at night.

A charming little train station surrounded by oversized modern buildings and overshadowed by a totally inappropriate modern industrial roof.

The outside of the station looks more impressive than the interior. I'm not sure why it is rated as a tourist attraction - it's just a station, with platforms, lockers and an underpass. It is far less attractive than St Pancras.

What can you say about a train station? The main building is going through renovations, so you'll have to purchase tickets at the temporary building in the square in front.

Traveled to and from Leuven by train. The station was pleasant, functional, with a very helpful staff. I would not call it a tourist attraction; it's clean, and does what is it is designed to do. More seats in the station would be useful when waiting any length of time for the train to arrived.

A very easy access well organized train station, connects you to every where. Development is on going for better services, but it is fine, if you reach there, you can easily find your way.
