Leuven, your host city, is situated in the middle of Belgium, close to Brussels and the linguistic border between Flanders and Wallonia. It offers everything that is typical of a university center: the symbiosis of the city population and students, pubs and college buildings. Leuven represents the fusion of old and new, of style and dynamics, with high-tech laboratories flanked by the historical fronts of ancient colleges bearing Latin names.
It is a city with a rich architectural and cultural heritage. A city that unites the typical Burgundian character with a rich tradition of spirituality. Leuven is the cradle of one of the oldest universities in the world, and houses -not accidentally- one of the largest breweries in the world. Leuven is not a “big” city, at least not in surface area. It is a real open air museum you have to explore gradually, along the cozy streets, alleys and squares that breath their own history.
Leuven is home to the KU Leuven, the largest and oldest university of the Low Countries. The city is also known for being the cradle of the famous Stella beer, and today headquarters Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer and one of the five largest consumer-goods companies in the world.
CAMA 2020 will be held in the historic University Hall of KU Leuven in the centre of Leuven, which is at a 15 min walk from the railway station. At Leuven railway station, you can also take any bus that drives into the city centre. Get off near the city hall. Then it is still about a 100 m walk. Your hotel will be pleased to give you further instructions how to get around in the small city centre.
