Getting to Louvain-la-Neuve

By train

Louvain-la-Neuve is easily accessible by train and its train station is located in the very centre of the town. From Brussels, you can get to Louvain-la-Neuve in about 40 minutes.
If you are travelling to Louvain-la-Neuve by train, be sure to ask for a ticket to "Louvain-la-Neuve Université" and NOT to Louvain (or Leuven in Dutch), which is a different city, and to get on the train to Ottignies.

From any Belgian station, take the train towards Ottignies, a station situated on the Brussels-Ottignies-Namur-Luxembourg line (trains every half hour in both directions).

Get off at Ottignies station and change trains to continue to Louvain-la-Neuve-Université (about 8 min.).
Some trains go straight from Brussels to Louvain-la-Neuve but take more time.

Timetables are available on the web site of the SNCB, or by phone (+32/2/555.25.25).
