HI THERE!

Welcome to KAMPING KONTAKT. Set up your tent in the heart of Leuven & come stay at our pop-up urban campsite, while respecting the neighborhood and planet at the same time. Spend the night in our urban oasis of peace and quiet.

Once you’re well rested, you won’t be bored. We offer a lot of activities, such as workshops, sports sessions and performances. Hungry? Join a brunch, barbecue or dinner based on local products.

INFO & FAQ

You can book a camping spot, tent, breakfast or brunch via the reservation form.

Sounds great… but what does it all cost?

We think that vacation should be accessible for anyone. Depending on your budget, we ask between €5 and €15 per night for adults and between €3 and €5 for children over 3 year old. It would be great if you bring your own tent. If you don’t own one, you can rent one for €3 per person. Reservation is not obligatory, but full = full.

When can I check in & out?

Tents can be set up from 14h onwards on the day of arrival. You have to check out before 12h on the day of departure. KAMPING KONTAKT will be open between the afternoon of July 10 and the morning of August 4.

Will there be something to eat?

Yes! Every morning we offer a simple and honest breakfast (€5 per adult, €3 per child). On Sundays we will provide something a bit more special: a brunch (€15 per adult, €10 per child). We also regularly organize a cozy neighborhood kitchen or a barbecue. Snacks are also offered in our bar, but it is permitted to cook your own meals at the cooking place.

Can I bring my friends & family?

Yes! KAMPING KONTAKT is accessible to everyone. Young and old, people from Leuven or visitors … everyone is welcome. For large groups it is best to book in advance.

How can I access KAMPING KONTAKT?

Our address is Tivolistraat, 3001 Leuven. There is plenty of room to park your bike. The campsite is also easily accessible by public transport. If you still want to come by car, you can drop off your things at the campsite and then continue to a public parking.

What is the best way to travel in Leuven?

KAMPING KONTAKT is within walking distance of Leuven center. If you prefer something more mobile, you can rent a bike at the campsite for € 3 per half day or € 5 per full day. The stock is limited, so please send an email to info@kampingkontakt.be to reserve your bike in advance.

ABOUT US

The standards for a successful holiday seem to be increasingly evolving towards exclusivity, consumption and photogenic locations. These vacations are not accessible to everyone and moreover have a negative impact on the environment. As far as we are concerned, holidays can also be experienced in an accessible, budget-friendly and climate-neutral way! Be amazed, escape from the everyday reality & share unique experiences.

KAMPING KONTAKT gives you the opportunity to go on vacation in a sustainable, ecological and social way. We also place great value on encouraging encounters, creating inspiration, pursuing an urban experiment and working with local partners. In short: it is an new way to experience Leuven.

We are a group of young & committed volunteers, studying or working in the sociocultural and architectural sector. We share our passions of camping and our home city of Leuven.

Thanks to our generous partners:
