Leuven's Stadhuis or Town hall has to be one of the most stunning I have ever seen. During my month long stay in Leuven I never tired of seeing this amazing building. My daily walks into town invariably took me past this most central location where I would have to pause to try and take in more of the sights... More

If you want to see nice gothic art, come and visit Leuven and do not forget to admire the town hall.

One of the nicest town halls in Belgium, same architect as in Brussels & Oudenaarde. It's even more spectacular at night.

To register at the Stadkantoor (Town hall) you would need a rental agreement. Once you step in take a coupon and wait for your turn to come. This is located near the train station. Once the registration is done you will receive annex 15 with which you can open a bank account.

Great building and an informative tour however, if you were like me and had it in both Dutch and English, it can become exhausting waiting for your language. The guide was excellent and I commend her ability!

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
