The international symposium is held at the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren, a lovely village that is marked by the presence of the museum within the setting of a beautiful park, a well-known arboretum, lots of forest and a centre with a few nice restaurants and shops. Tervuren lies in between Leuven (13 km) and Brussels (15 km) and is easily reached by car, bike or public transport.

However, there are only 2 hotels with a limited number of rooms so we recommend you to book a room in Leuven. Leuven is a small but very lively, historical and charming town with a wide range of hotels, restaurants, pubs and so on. Moreover, the suggested hotels are located around the station of Leuven. Arriving at the national airport of Zaventem (Brussels), you can take a direct train to this station (13 minutes, around 9 €). If you book a room in one of the following hotels, you are maximum 300 m away from the bus stop of the shuttle service (included in the conference fee):
