“A lively place to have a drink and some food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

In the evening, this is a lively student area but not boisterous. Lots of places to pick from. It is also good for a coffee and a snack during the day

“nice during the day, ambiance in the evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Although Louvain suffered during the wars, this place has been reconstructed. It is a walking area. There are plenty of restaurants, cafés and brasseries! Also when visiting Louvain (Leuven) come here after some visits to rest out!

Nice place for a quick bite, good dinner or just drinks. Be aware: busses are allowed to cross the square so look out :)

“lovely square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

A lovely square where you can have a full exterior view of the Town Hall and St Peter's Church. However....do watch out for the mad cyclists. We thought Amsterdam was bad but Leuven at times can be a lot worse. Plus a lot of the side streets are cobbled stones, very uneven and raised in some places, and difficult to walk on the pavements in those streets because of the parked bicycles. When the schools let out in the afternoon be very aware...they speed on bikes with mobiles attached to their ears and are totally oblivious to the pedestrians......
