  • Nicer on the outside than on the inside, but still well worth taking the guided tour. The tour lasted about an hour and was very informative.  more »

  • Leuven is a relatively less crowded city, which allows you have a closer look at these kind of beautiful gothic architectures.
  • A beautiful gothic building worth visiting if you’re near the area.
  • Very beautiful building especially when they lit up the light at night.
  • A great landmark to visit. The sculptures are sculpted in such a way that they look like same size from top to bottom. Amazing art works and had a wonderful time at the Christmas market. Also look out for the nearby church in renovation.
  • Very beautiful place near by a gorgeous square. Open at morning time with good tutorial guide aside.
