What to expect

Travel back to the Leuven in the 1990s, the time where almost every student in the city rented a room owned by Arthur Peeters. During this Escape Tour, you will discover the life of this infamous rack-rent landlord and find out how he made some students escape the city through the secret exit of Leuven. Can you find this exit?

Arthur Peeters was not a nice man, if a student could not pay their rent, he threw them on the streets. Student chairman, Jan van Gelder, wanted to confront Arthur with some fellow members. This did not go well and suddenly they had to flee the city trying to escape Arthur. Their only option was using the secret passage out of Leuven. Your job is to help them find this secret exit.

Wonder through Leuven and help Jan van Gelder by trying to solve the assignments, difficult questions and fun riddles. You will play the Escape Tour using an app you'll download before starting the race against the clock. Follow the clues, solve the puzzles to escape the city within 2 hours. The escape attempt starts on the Mathieu de Layensplein. Good luck!
