  • Beautiful church, it is one of the main buildings in the historical centre of Leuven. Quite imposing. Possibility to visit the Interior.

  • Saint Peter's Church so large that it is, in fact, most of the city's main square. All the surrounding houses compared with her look small. I started this extraordinary sample of Brabant Gothic built nearly 600 years ago. Local residents are interested in getting a giant Cathedral in the city center, but they didn't have enough money for construction. Therefore, the Church looks unfinished: no building towers.

  • It was being painted white internally when we visited, the lectern is a work of art in wood. It is worth paying the small extra to view the Treasury.  more »

  • A great big church,...it is worth the effort to visit it! Lies at De Grote Markt, right across the old City hall!
  • I'm sure it will be better once the renovation is completed
  • A really beautiful and astonishing church. Late Gothic style and recently beautifully renovated. A beautiful square surrounded with beautiful buildings and this is one of them.
  • Under renovation right now. Half the church is paid admission so 4 stars.
  • Nice church, now in renovation
