A modern building with steel structured roof in excellent condition with signs of on going works. There are ample cafes on the platform with more in the station buildings. While waiting on the platform I was delighted to see a Thalys pass through the station at speed in a wash of spray and rain. The bus station appears to be... More

The original building is nice but the soldier's memorial out front is much better. It killed some time getting here and let us see more of the city. But you can spend your time much better elsewhere.

A while ago they refurbished the entire railway station. There are a lot more food shops (Panos, Starbucks,...). You can get tickets in the main hall or in the building. Getting your ticket at a ticket dispenser takes less time than cueing up. Now, passes can be renewed at the dispensers as well. People who bike through the tunnel, will... More

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!

I work here. Since the big cleanup in 2000 the Railway station turned into a big building block with no straight view or image. The bus station De Lijn, a horrific red block added to a neo-eclectic sandstone building beginning 1900's and next to it, all those US-style city-hall-bank-insurance buildings. The complex looks as if you're in an anonymous European... More

Thisntrain station is small but easy to get around. The staff speaks excellent English and are very friendly. The conductors will also be more than happy to confirm you are on the correct track. There is a Starbucks in the station near the main entrance. Step outside and simply walk straight for about 5 Minutes and you will be in... More
