Beautiful place. Fresh and soothing, I just did a walk along a small path there in winter and it was really nice!

Ideal for a walk in nature
Jan 2018 • Friends
The best place to have a walk in Louvain-la-Neuve is undoubtedly around the lake. No one will argue about that! The second best place is the Bois de Lauzelle. It is a lovely wood ("bois" in French) in the north of Louvain-la-Neuve. Ideal for walks and runs all year round, but most enjoyable late spring and during the summer, it is home to a small monastery called "Clerland", where students or anyone who wants a few days of peace can rent a room.

On weekends, meditation workshops (zen days) are also organized. Pierre de Béthune, the leading monk, is involved in interfaith dialogue. He has lived in a zen monastery in Japan for several years. He leads small meditation retreats there, in the heart of the Bois de Lauzelle. I warmly recommend you this meditation workshop. If you aren't into meditation, no problem, you can still enjoy the beautiful wood, for a walk, a jog, a bicycle ride, a picnic or any activity of that kind.

Nice place for promenades
Aug 2017 • Couples
Close - walking distance - from Louvain La Neuve, this protected and well-cared forrest area is suitable for walking, jogging alone or in family. There are instructive info panels on botanic and animal topics. Tracks are well identified and safe.
