From Leuven railway station turn right onto the dual carriageway (R23) and into the Diestsevest, and continue for 800 m before turning left onto the Vaart. After 400 m you turn right and right again (around the Water Vaartkom) and again onto the Vaart leading to the Kolonel Begaultlaan after the railway tracks.
