Facades in Leuven


The white house with the boat on top is the "Schippershuis" and the one to the right of it ''t Oude Woud"  (Old Forest)

wonderful terraces for people watching, relaxing and enjoying a Belgian beer or something equally delicious
 
"Het Moorinnenken" houses a cafe and restaurant


this building used to be the post office, 
now it is home to the  store " 't Kruidvat"

  5. The buildings are fantastic, but what leaped out as me as a linguist was the word 'woud', for forest, which is the same as the old english 'wold'. I intend to take an evening class in Dutch sometime soon!
