Truly the most beautiful town hall in Belgium and maybe even Europe. Views from every angle is breath-taking. There are plenty of cafes around the square so a stop for coffee or lunch will allow you to enjoy this wonder a bit longer.

The outside of Leuven's Stadhuis is truly spectacular. In December the lighting makes it stand out even more. There is a guided tour daily at 3 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the tourist center around the corner from the Stadhuis and the tour starts there as well. The inside has a few nice rooms, but much of this building... More

This building in the citycenter of Leuven which survived WWI & WWII and which has been renovated some 20 years ago is a must for every tourist. The statues on the outside walls, who were decaptivated following the French revolution have been restored to their former glory and the large entrance hall is still used on formal occasions : opposite...

Lovely place to go, you cannot get disappointed. I'd suggest to park the car in the Luzen Parking Garage, which is a very big one.

In daytime, there are a huge number of statues around the building, but night time in December it had magical illuminations, well worth a detour at that time of year.

Easily one of the most beautiful buildings you will ever visit. The amount of detail placed in the architecture is amazing. A must see when in Leuven. Right outside of the building are several great bars and restaurants. Noting like indulging in a local brew (Duvel) and taking in the site.

I've been to the stadhuis a number of times since moving to the area (I walk past it constantly to visit some of my favorite shops in Leuven), but it never gets old! Right now, around the winter holiday season, is the best time to visit this historic landmark building! It is well-decorated, and a manger scene across from the... More
