Where We Are
Bhaktivedanta College is situated in the verdant Ardennes region of Belgium, in one of the most attractive and popular holiday areas, an hour’s drive south-east of the national capital. Brussels itself is a major transport hub, approximately two hours from Paris, London, and Frankfurt.
The closest town is historic Durbuy, locally described as “the smallest city in the world”; one hour away is the medieval city of Leuven (Louvain), home to the world’s oldest Catholic university, and two hours of drive separates us from Bruges, Belgian Venice world famous for its perfectly preserved medieval architecture.
The College campus lies adjacent to the picturesque Radhadesh Chateau de Petite Somme, home to a thriving ISKCON community of bhakti yogis. It houses a gorgeous Radha-Krishna shrine, renowned for its high standards of puja (worship) and kirtan (musical meditation). The castle also offers other facilities, such as the Museum of Sacred Art, a vegetarian restaurant and cafeteria, a retreat centre, an exotic boutique, a promenade trail on the wooded estate, and a traditional bakery. Radhadesh is a vibrant community where many retreats, courses, and cultural festivals are held.
With its scenic, secluded environment, the campus is ideal for study, research, meditation, and reflection.
