Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve

Ottignies the town that welcomed the Catholic university of Louvain enriched itself culturally with touristic attractions due to the construction of the new town. Created on paper and constructed in the middle of fields, Louvain-la-Neuve is an extraordinary university town at all level, be it urbanistic, architectural, cultural or social. Pedestrian, green and of human size, Louvain-la-Neuve offers many public spaces that rhythms’ the pace and initiates easy encounters. Numerous architects took part in its construction leaving free course to creativity, which gives the town a modern and nearly futuristic aspect. But the founders of Louvain-la-Neuve never imagined a town without art. A lot of sculptures and murals, sometimes curious, can be seen by all in the town’s public spaces. Finally, discover the greenbelt of Louvain-la-Neuve, the wood of Lauzelle, area of recreational and scientific activities or make the most of a guided tour around the lake and observe the wildlife and flora. You will be able to see ducks, coots or maybe deers, as well as gather excellent advice about the plants that can be found. Nearby another forest called “Wood of dreams” spread his green valley from the lake of Louvain-la-Neuve till the city center of Ottignies.

Our local guides will lead your group following the maze of streets, in the woods or until the lake to walk through the green part of the town. Our team of experimented guides are used to fit the features of the groups, most likely seniors.

The thematic of the visit for your group is at your choice and organized on demand by the tourism board. Each visit can be combined with one of the two museums, the “Hergé Museum” and the “Museum L” or you can take advantage of a program “à la carte” and make your own combination.
