  • The Town Hall is located in plaza. Surrounded by bars for a drink, very nice day and lit at night

  • With the many coloured lights for Christmas which change color looked like Disneyland, too bad for the great building.

  • We were lucky to visit Leuven during the Christmas market, so the square was illuminated. We had a cold, but it was worth it in Exchange for the wonderful atmosphere they breathed in the entire city,

  • 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.
