Travel Guide to Leuven
- Via Brussels National Airport (BRU): The national airport receives flights from over 200 destinations in 66 countries every day. It’s easy to travel from Brussels national airport to Leuven by direct trains (15 min). There are two Intercity trains every hour with final stops in either Landen or Hasselt. You can find more information about schedules and fares at Belgian Railways (NMBS).
- Via Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL): This airport receives only low-cost flights (Ryanair, Wizz, etc. ) from all over Europe. It is located 50 km south of Brussels but has good bus connections with Brussels and Bruges. You can use the shuttle service to Brussels-Midi station (50 min every 30 min) and take a train to Leuven (not Louvain-la-Neuve).
The Brussels Midi station is the Belgian hub for international train traffic, receiving multiple high-speed trains per day from Paris (Thalys and TGV), Lille (Eurostar and TGV), London (Eurostar), Amsterdam (Thalys) and Cologne (Thalys and ICE). Every hour, there are several intercity trains that leave Brussels Midi that stop in Leuven (25 min), with final stops in either Genk or Luik/Liege. For tickets and more info click here.
From the railway station of Leuven, best is to walk directly towards your accommodation. You can alternatively take a De Lijn bus or a taxi. A (one-way) bus ticket (€ 2-2.50) is valid for one hour. You can alternatively buy a De Lijn pass from € 7.50. This pass is valid on all buses and trams in Flanders.
