We'll visit the medieval center of Leuven, including the townhall, the St. Pieterschurch, and the old colleges of the 590-year old university. The knocking heart of Leuven, being the Old Market Place with the Kotmadam is also a real nice area. One of the highlights is the grand beguinage from the 13th century. A little bit of war history includes the library of the university.
