Leuven is not too big and everything is within walking distance. Yet there is a lot to see, and having to walk from the railway station to the other side of town, and then again to another side, and back to the centre, etc., is manageable, but certainly needs some planning. Not necessarily the landscape photographers' kind of planning (consulting the "photographers ephemeris" on the web in order to find the best date and hour does not make much sense, as the date has already been picked...), but a planning in the sense that if I want to see A, B, C and D, then it makes sense to first combine A and D, as these are in neighbouring quarters close to the point of departure, and then proceed to C, and eventually visit B which is on the way back;
In the coming weeks I will post some photos of sites in Leuven, always combined with an area indication. At a given point in time, I will make a map with a representation of these areas. This should allow everybody to make a personal plan! I do not doubt that in the end we will also find some common denominator, as there are sights everybody wants to see (or should be willing to see?), but this approach at least leaves room for particular idiosyncrasies. It might e.g. just be that not everyone is into organs...
If my photos not only incite you to say "I can do better", but also spur you to say "I want to do better", my mission is accomplished.
