Discovering a city is always a lot of fun! Taking some lovely pictures to go along with it and share with your friends is definitely a lovely part of the experience. However, not every spot has that certain something which makes your picture simply magical. We have selected our ten favourite Instagramspots for when you come to visit our hometown Leuven (which we seriously recommend ;)).
The cute white houses, cobblestone street, the beautiful plants and flowers and the Saint Gertrudechurch in the background… This cosy street is the definition of picturesque! Make sure to shoot your picture in the direction of the church as this really is the cherry on top of your picture.
The Great Beguinage might be one of the most Instagramable spots in the city. Every corner in this little town inside the city is picturesque and will just take you back in time.
Pieter De Somersquare
Take a picture from the Pieter De Somerplein in the direction of the Grote Markt and you get a lovely collection of Leuven highlights as well as a gorgeous contrast between historical and modern.
Lots of symmetry and flowers, what more do you need to spice up your Instagramfeed? 😉
Roofterrace M Museum
We absolutely love the roof terrace of the M Museum in Leuven. High above the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, you get to look over the rooftops of Leuven and get an astonishing view over the University Library at the Ladeuzesquare.
The library isn’t only stunning on the outside, but also on the inside. This hub of wisdom and knowledge is simply gorgeous and a lovely location to snap some pictures.
The up and coming neighbourhood Vaartkom has the perfect hip and trendy vibe you want for your picture! It’s great to see how the old industrial buildings have found a second life.
How cute and romantic is this little park? The bridge over the little pond looks like it ran away out of a classic romantic movie… Perfect for a romantic shot!
Colourful, cute, cool street art, … It has all the elements for that perfect Instagrampic you want.
Last but definitely not least!! The gorgeous Abdij van Park is surrounded by a couple of lakes and fields. You can get a lovely picture of this abbey from multiple points of view without anything obstructing your view.
