Tour description

Leuven , a university city , but also one of the most important medieval cities in Belgium and home to the largest brewing company in the world.
We encourage you to join our free tour of the city of Leuven, it will surely not leave you indifferent.

On our tour of Leuven we will see the most important points of this beautiful city. We will begin our tour at the train station and, from there, we will head towards the historic center of the city. On the way to the most important square in the city, we will make a short stop at the Plaza de los Martires .
And from there we will arrive at the spectacular Laudezeplein, a square where the Library of the University of Leuven is located, a famous building and symbol of the city. Following this academic path, we will visit the Faculty of Psychology, with its beautiful gardens. Passing through the most lively area of the city and a point to have a drink after the tour, we will arrive at the Grote Markt.
In this medieval square we can discover several of the most spectacular buildings of the Brabantine Gothic style in Belgium: the Cathedral of Saint Peter and the Town Hall.
And very close to this wonderful square we will visit the Oueder Markt, the most famous and eclectic square in the city. And, approaching our final point, we will visit the baroque jewel of the Church of San Miguel or the Chapel of San Damián. And we will end our tour with the most magical, hidden and spectacular place in the city: the Gran Beguinario.

Matilde es una narradora excepcional. Cuenta la historia de la ciudad sintiéndolo y eso se transmite. Caminar más de dos bajo la lluvia y el frío y terminar con una sonrisa y con ganas de seguir visitando la ciudad. Totalmente recomendable.

He hecho 2 tours con Mundistour en un fin de semana. En el primero (el de esta reseña) éramos 42 personas, en el segundo 36. Había un grupo de 16 que había reservado al margen y debería haber ido con su guía, pero por lo visto a Mundistour le faltaron guías ese día y se juntaron con nosotros. Obviamente, la experiencia (tanto para ellos como para nosotros) no es la misma con un grupo tan grande. Sobre el guía, ninguna queja.
