You exit the E314 at exit nr. 18 'Leuven-Mechelen', which brings you to the Mechelsesteenweg (N26). Turn right in the direction of Leuven, shortly after which you turn to the left. It is helpful to follow the signpost "Abdij Keizersberg".

You follow this road all the way downhill (this is about 1 km after having left the Mechelsesteenweg), turning left at the bottom of the hill (in the direction "Alle Richtingen" and not "Centrum".

After 300 metres, (at which point you are alongside of the yacht-basin of Leuven), you turn right at the next traffic light (at the corner you will notice the café "Lantaarn"). You now enter the Vaartstraat, where the office is located. You will reach the office after about 200 metres.

How do you reach the office by public transportation?

The city of Leuven is easily accessible by train, and has good connections with Brussels and the other large cities of the country, as well as with Zaventem international airport.

The office is within walking distance of the station (about a 15 minute walk). Coming from the station, you follow the Bondgenotenlaan, which leads straight away from the station in the direction of the city center (where the Gothic city hall is visible).


After walking about 700 metres, you turn right at the "Bank Brussel Lambert (BBL)" into the street "Vital Decosterstraat". Follow this street until the very end. At the traffic light which you will see on your way, just continue straight ahead. The "Vital Decosterstraat" ends at a small square with parking spaces, which directly leads to the Vaartstraat. Turn right and the office is a few doors away.

From the station of Leuven there are numerous buses which travel to the centre of Leuven. You get off in the neighbourhood of the BBL, mentioned above, where you turn into the Vital Decosterstraat. This street leads to the Vaartstraat where the office is located.
