In the Spring of 2008 YENN launched its cultural and culinary walks through the rich history of Leuven. Now, close to 300 walks later we daresay we have a clear idea of what makes a successful walk.
What may one expect on a YENN Walk? A ‘perambulation’ with YENN Walks is all about catering to the various human senses : it is supposed to be a pleasure for eyes and ears, but taste and smell are also included, especially in the culinary part. Leuven and its history are made tangible and leave a lasting impression. We take our guests on a tour of well-known and lesser-known nooks of the city, along paths and parks often neglected by the hurried traveller. We clearly prefer anecdotal history, in which the town of days gone by is brought to life through a series of colourful characters. We treat the gourmand in carefully selected wine bars and restaurants.
What is a typical YENN Walk? Well, there is no 'typical' YENN Walk. YENN Walks shuns standardization. Each of our strolls is made to the measure of our customers. We will put together a programme only after we have consulted with you, have made a clear note of your wishes and preferences, and only then will we offer you a walk suited to your tastes.
Our walks can be theme-based (such as Leuven’s beguinages, its old hospital site, old college buildings or the centuries-old beer and wine history) or location-based (green nooks and squares, markets, and parks). Decide what you want to explore or let your group be taken along on a tour of our favourites.
YENN Walks are an original alternative to a team meeting or team building event with your company, or a nice way of hosting an event for customers or colleagues.
