Guided walk + visit of the Inbev Brewery

Friday, 13 October 2017

Are you interested in making a first acquaintance with the city of Leuven whilst sneaking in some Belgian beer brewing culture?

We will get started with the 'Discover Leuven'-walk. The tour will include a visit to the Grote Markt Square, a visit to the University colleges and cloth halls. The Grote Markt Square is famous for the Leuven city hall and the Saint Peter’s Church, both masterfully designed in the Brabantine Gothic architectural style by the renowned architect Matheus de Layens. A visit to the Great Beguinage, a UNESCO world Heritage site, will also be a highlight to remember. The walk will end at the InBev brewery. Here is where you will discover the history of Leuven’s crown jewel when it comes to beer: Stella Artois. You will enjoy an interactive guided tour through the brewing hall and an exciting ride along one of the bottling lines. After a vertiginous ride on one of the bottles lines, it is time for the real deal: drafting and tasting from a delicious Stella Artois in the Stella Artois bar above the brewery.

Excursion to Bruges

Saturday, 14 October 2017

Bruges is the capital of the West Flanders province situated in the northwest of Belgium. Bruges is well known for its canals which loop across the town like a string of pearls, creating the well-earned moniker of 'the Venice of the North'. With its cobblestone paths, brick archways, stone churches and quaint bridges, it is nearly impossible not to get impressed with this wonderful city.

Furthermore, Bruges is the perfect example of a medieval city center, with its bell tower leaning over the wide open market. As the city center is closed off to cars, all the stunning beauty and culture of this unforgettable city can excellently be explored on foot.

We will start the excursion with a guided city walk through the historical city center, walking past the market, the belfry, the beguinages and the lake of love. After the walk you might like to have lunch in the city center. We will then take you on a tour along the picturesque canals. Some leisure time will also allow you to discover the city on your own - you will have enough time to visit a museum or simply enjoy a refreshing drink at a local bar. After the excursion a bus will drive you back to Leuven.

Day: Saturday 14 October 2017
Time: 08:00 - 19:00
A bus of Focus Flanders will pick you up in the city centre of Leuven. The bus will leave at 08:00 in the morning.
Minimum number of participants: 25 persons
Maximum number of participants: 45 persons
Price: 110.00 EUR including bus transfer, guided walk, lunch and boat ride
