Magnificent Building

Don't go to Leuven without walking into the centre. It is beautiful. Marvel at the spender of the building as you enjoy a drink in the many bars and cafes in the market square

We got a tour through the town hall by a darling old lady called Cecile. She speakes Flemish and English both very good and she is incredibly funny. The tour was supposed to last an hour, but it eventually lasted one and a half hour. The town hall itself is very impressive, but our tour guide really made it more... More

So I'm not sure how this review will go. I have been to this square many times. I've only seen the outside. Amazing statues.

Really enjoyed this tour. Top class guide. Worth the €3 paid. The history of the statues on the Town Hall is really interesting. There are also a number of fascinating historical portraits that are worth seeing.

You cannot miss the Town Hall, when you visit Leuven. It is one of the most beutiful Gothic building built in 15th century. It is located in the center of the city at 'Main market' square. The 236 statues were added to the façade in 19th century.

This building is such a gem in a beautiful place. Leuven is a place with a young vibe since it is a college town and the building is perfectly located in the center of it all. The architecture is very interesting and truly captivating
