This is a highlight of Leuven - truly beautiful in its architecture. I've lived in Belgium for a year and, despite travelling to many other cities, I haven't seen one with a town hall as beautiful and impressive as this. You could stare at it for hours. I took a guided tour there when my friends visited and while the... More

Everything to appreciate about is magnificent structure is the exterior. It is one of the most beautiful pieces of mediaeval municipal architecture to be found in Northern and Western Europe.

The exterior of this building is amazing...we were excited to learn more, but when we asked for a tour we were told that English tours were only available on select days. We could not go in the building without a tour so we did not get to explore this building. The gentleman in the visitor center was not very helpful... More

One of the highlights of Gothic architecture in Europe. But Leuven has many other sights worth visiting !

I'm a local, and have walked past the old Town Hall a zillion times and still can't do it without this WOW feeling. And around Christmas time, it's all lit up with festive lights! It's not in use anymore since a few years, there's a modern town hall to the right of the train station now. But you can *visit*... More

We walk past the Stadhuis daily and every single day there is a 'wow' feeling - how lucky we are to live in this town with such beautiful architecture! Definitely make the time to visit the Grote Markt in Leuven (and watch for the clock on the church striking!)

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

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