Avoid the busiest times and visit Hear Here on weekdays, or after 17:00 during the weekend.
Due to popularity, there may be queues for the more fragile works in small spaces. Sound art demands some rest and attention, that’s why we ask you not to talk or play near the works, out of respect for the artists and the other listeners.
Most of the locations are wheelchair accessible unless otherwise noted in the info about the works.
Families & children
Visiting Hear Here with kids? Then don’t miss our children’s guide (in Dutch). The guide is free and available at the start at Visit Leuven in the Town Hall and at the various indoor locations.

Earcatcher Pieter Janssens
Especially for Hear Here, visual artist Pieter Janssens from Leuven created a public listening sculpture. This ‘earcatcher’ is located on the Grote Markt and invites you to listen consciously to the sounds of the city.
Hear Here is more than a pleasure for the eye and ear : you can warp yourself in it completely!
