Compact and picturesque Leuven is the capital of the Flemish Brabant region and a bustling student city. Don't be fooled by its size: the town's stupendous architecture is a statement to its illustrious history. Residents of Leuven are known as De Koeienschieters (The Cow Shooters) after an incident occurred one night in 1691 when they thought they were under attack from the French and open fire on their enemy. However, when the day broke they realised the 'siege' had been nothing more than a herd of cows. Leuven's city centre is compact and easy to navigate on foot. Don't miss to visit the Stadhuis, the jaw dropping and Flanders' best 15th-century town hall, and the Fonske, an irreverent statue of a young chap reading while is pouring a pint of beer over his head, mascot for Leuven University students. for the beer lovers a visit to the Stella Artois brewery is a must!Choose from the offers below and book you short breaks today!3* Ibis Leuven Centrum - Free Nights OfferFree nights Offer
