The ten most Instagramable spots of Leuven!

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 ;)).

Small Beguinage

Make sure to shoot your picture in the direction of the church as this really is the cherry on top of your picture.

Great Beguinage

Botanical Garden


Lots of symmetry and flowers, what more do you need to spice up your Instagramfeed? 😉

Roofterrace M Museum

158 Museum MWe 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.

University Library

Park Abbey
