Do not confuse Louvain (the French translation of the Flemish city of Leuven) with Louvain-la-Neuve which is another city on another railway line.
FROM Brussels National Airport (Zaventem)
- Take the Leuven bound train at the airport itself. These trains usually have Luik (Liège, in French) as its final destination but they stop in Leuven en route. The Brussels-Leuven trip takes about 20 minutes by express train.
- Take a taxi from the airport. This will cost around € 70.
FROM Brussels Charleroi Airport
Take the shuttle coach that leaves the airport every hour to take you to the main Brussels railway station (Brussels-Midi). The trip lasts around one hour. At Brussels-Midi railway station, then take the train to Leuven/Louvain.
