Photographer's Note

Universiteitsbibliotheek Leuven

It's time to return to TE (again), since I have some new photos now and will get some more soon, I think. :-) Last week for example, I spent a couple of days in Belgium, where I visited, among others, the city of Leuven. Along with the fine sunny weather, the city offered some great photo opportunities.

Leuven (French: Louvain) is a city of 90.000 inhabitants, located in the province of Vlaams-Brabant (Flemish Brabant), about 30 kilometers east of Brussels. It is the home of the oldest university in the Low Countries (1425), of which the building you see here is a part: de Universiteitsbibliotheek (University Library). It was built from 1921 to 1928 after the first library was destroyed in World War I. It was designed by the American architect Whitney Warren in Low Countries Neorenaissance style. The tower is 87m tall.

The photo was taken at the end of the afternoon. I hope you like it and thanks for your visit! :-)
