Boat trip from Leuven and Kampenhout to Mechelen. Return on your own initiative by train, bus or bicycle.

Friday 12/08/2022

Peaceful boat trip on the canal between Leuven and Mechelen. The Leuven-Dijle canal is a rural waterway along which economic activity has largely disappeared. There are several relatively small locks on the shipping route, which makes the waterway less suitable for large-scale and fast freight transport. This channel is all the more interesting for recreational use. Cyclists and walkers like to use the elongated towpaths, fishermen can practice their 'sport' in peace and the sailing is calm and pleasant.

A guided walk in the historic center of Leuven can be organized for groups prior to the boat trip. Afterwards, you will embark at the Leuvense Vaartkom for the boat trip to Mechelen. You can also start this boat trip in Kampenhout.
