Not only is this a nice train station, but you can take the train directly from the airport in Brussels to Leuven. Within and outside, lots of great places to eat and have a beer or a coffee. Local people are kind and helpful. The train station also is next to the bus terminal, and Leuven is easy to walk... More

The modern and efficient but slightly soulless station is central to the town, so is a good place to arrive. It 's confusing, though, with no information useful to a tourist. The sandwich shops (Panos) offer a wide variety of filled rolls (belegde brood) that are the best value for money anywhere in Leuven!

The complex looks as if you're in an anonymous European... More
