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
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
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.
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.
