Daytrip to Tervuren - Walk, Picnic & Africa Museum

Join us on a day trip to Tervuren and get to know the region even more! We will start in Leuven with the bus and head straight to the museum. After a guided tour of the museum we will find a spot in the park for a picnic and then go on a walk! See the agenda below.
