We live several miles from this place and this probably the most unique building within Brussels. Slow city and a lot of college students.

One of the most beautiful buildings in Belgium but unfortunately very limited choice of times to do a tour.

It is worth visiting, really beautiful building. The whole old city is worth exploring if you like Gothic architecture.

We had a very nice time touring the Town Hall due to our interesting guide. He was friendly, open, and seemed genuinely glad to share the history of this place. (Buy your pass at the SUPER-HELPFUL Tourism Info Office located just around the corner). Tip: we saved 2Euro by sharing that we arrive in Leuven via train.

this might be the most magnificient building of the Brussels and even i've ever seen. but i would't have gone to Leuven if i wasn't visiting nearby regions because it is really a slow city and there are not much things to see.

While beautiful to look at it is worth finding out what the statues are and the story behind them. We opted out of the tour of the inside as we had a young child with us, but learned a great deal on the city tour. Beatuiful!

We have visited Leuven several times, but still find the architecture to be amazing. Even though it was very busy at times, it still remains peaceful, it is lovely to walk about in the square, or sit and admire this beautiful building. It is quite unbelievable that although this area is full of students, and people of all ages it... More

This was a great building that you can actually get close to without throngs of people in your way. Enjoyed walking by it on our morning walks through town!

The town hall is an impressive master piece of architecture. All the statues and details are delicate like lace.
