    The Central Library of KU Leuven, also known as the C-Bib among the student population, is a building with tons of character.

    The story of this war memorial fascinates more than ever, now that cultural heritage is under over the world. During a one-and-a-half-hour visit in and around this stately witness of war and reconstruction, Leuven Leisure’s guide will tell you all about its past, present and future. Experience it for yourself with a visit to the great reading hall and a climb of the carillon tower.

    Well worth a visit – actually not-to-be-missed to really understand the story of this city and university.
