The "biggest pub in the world" is worth the detour.

This uses to be a place of interest if it didn't have those works on when I was there, this time...

The "biggest pub in the world" is in fact the ancient market square (Oude Markt). With lots of pubs. Only pubs and cafés would you find there.

So easy to go there and soak up the ambience (and sun) in the cafés or on terraces in spring and summer.

I think this would be "Leuven for lazy" activity. Not that I am a rush-and-run tourist type either. :) Sometimes lazy, other times hectic...

I really think soaking up the ambience with locals, in their favourite hangouts is worth the walking tours. So far, I like when it's a bit of this and a bit of that.

Directions: Oude Markt, near Grote Markt :)
