  • Historic place. Visit with a guide is worthwhile.
  • A must see in Leuven. The town hall is among the most beautiful of the world. All the statues tell old tales of the bible and myths. The building was partly destroyed during the world war, the leftover statues are exhibited inside the building
  • One of the most beautiful city halls in the world. If you see anything in Leuven, it should be this. Check beforehand if the city hall will be open for vistors, because there are often closed events happening in the main hall.
  • Amazing Gothic style building, a must see when you are visiting Leuven. There's no second building like this.
  • Beautiful exquisite and a must see.
