Where?

Genadedal Ontmoetingscentrum 

Velderblok 2A 

3010 Leuven  

Transport 

Parking space is available near the venue. 

There are easy and frequent (every 15min on Saturday, but only every 30min on Sunday!) bus connections from the train station to the venue and to the centre of the city. Take bus number 2 Heverlee - Kessel-Lo and get off at bus stop Pie de Nijper, follow the arrows for the tournament (walk 350m). Buying tickets on the bus is rather expensive (3€, bills larger than 10€ are not accepted), better to buy a 10 x one way card before in the Relay shop at the station or download the app De Lijn to buy mobile tickets (cheapest way for individual tickets). Website and app are unfortunately only available in Dutch.

The centre is only 1 km from the station, so you can also walk to discover the city. Start by Bondgenotenlaan in front of the station and soon you'll see the majestic town hall and St.-Peter's church.

If you come by train, please note the French translation of Leuven is "Louvain". You may not take trains to "Louvain La Neuve" or "Louvain LLN".

Bike rental might also be an option if you arrive on Friday before 7p.m. and depart on Monday after 8.30a.m. (Fietspunt at the train station).
