  • If you are in Belgium, whatever your reason for visiting, the Grote Markt (Grand place) of Leuven is to visit. In every major city of Belgium there is this kind of square (Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent). Here in Leuven is the absolute masterpiece of brabantine Gothic. All planned and built according to the canons of the time, you can admire the architecture that turn upward, long and narrow, with picturesque decorations, spires and the sculptures are all different. If you do not want to visit the Town Hall and various monuments, there is always a chance to grab a coffee or a beer (Stella Artois is brewed here) in the square, crowded premises by students from all over Europe who live here.
