  • Hergé Museum

    by hdkeulenaer Written Oct 2, 2011

    This is a well organised museum, hosted in an award-winning architectural setting. The visit with audio guide is user-friendly and very good value for money. You can easily spend a few hours here. To finish your visit, there are good facilities, such as a museum shop, a spacious lobby where you can take a rest, or a restaurant. An absolute must for comic book fans.

    Noel at Louvain-la-Neuve

    by DrewV Written Jul 23, 2003
    The Christmas market

    Even though very few people actually "live" in Louvain-la-Neuve, the Christmas Market is large and extensive. Why? Because students buy gifts too, and they tend to have disposible income.

    So during the weeks before Noel, the Place de l'Universite, a large square next ot the train station, is packed with tents and stands selling all sorts of Christmas-like gifts and food and vin chaud (warm wine for cold days).

    Every Tuesday, the local farmers and sellers come by and fill the square with a less Christmas-y version. Still good, though.

    24h de LLN

    No bike photos... Will beer do?

    How's this for a party:

    20 groups of students create crazy-looking floats mounted on bicycles, then ride them around town for 24 hours, all the while guzzling as much beer as humanly possible.

    Sound good?

    That's 24h de Louvain-la-Neuve. And I missed it. This second largest annual drinking party in Europe (After Oktoberfest), and I missed it. I was in London, trying to get a job. Meanwhile, everyone I knew, including my little brother, was guzzling Belgium's finest for 24 straight hours.

    And, to top it off, no one in London would hire me.

    Zut alors!!!
