I lived in Leuven in 1987 - 1988 and used to join Misa at Sint Kwinten Kerk at 10:00 Sunday morning, I was 23 years old, KUL student at the time... from Indonesia. I wonder if this lovely Church is still open today. I plan to visit Leuven to join the Misa at this Church. It was Vader Reinhard van de Berg in my time there but to bad that I could not meet him when I visited Leuven with my wife... long years ago. I am now almost 60 years old and waiting a chance to visit Leuven again.

Definitely one of the most stunning churches in Leuven. Friendly and active community which hails from all continents. Beautiful, reverent liturgy. Make sure to stay after mass for coffee, cake and a chat!

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
