  • Next to the church there is also a museum part furnished with very extensive audio tour. Very worth it. And, fine in the winter ... heated!

  • 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.

  • Stunning! The square and the buildings take you to a place which feels like pást centuries' wonderland. Must see experience especially at night when the lightning is on. Wonderful!
  • The church is under renovation so it is a bit bothering, especially if you only visit the free part. For a few Euros you''ll get an a access to the treasury where are displayed magnificent paintings and items. A few words of warning though : most of the paintings depict martyrs so it is very graphic and can be really disturbing.
  • Fine, a big church with typical stunning architecture, audio guide was incredibly dull however!
  • 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
