We followed the " green route" on our map to find this lovely garden. Free to wander and although small, beautifully laid out and labelled. A tranquil spot to sit and ponder. Very colourful and has a wide selection of plants.

Who makes the effort to come to the Botanical Garden of Leuven (Kruidtuin) wil be surprised by its loveliness. Take a walk, sit on a bench, enjoy. Practical details: there is a picnic table somewhere in a corner (discover by yourself where). No food or...More
