Not only a great monument but also the place where I got married! Impressive 15th (?) century building with gothic features and wonderfully detailed. Pay attention adoring visitor, the statues where only added in the 19th century. Breathtaking at night when lit up. Well worth the visit.

About an hour, mixed dutch and english speaking group went well. Enough rooms and history to be interesting without too much detail.

You round the corner into the town square and, "wow, where did that come from?". The Stadhuis is a stunning example of Brabantine Gothic architecture. It's intricate details encourage you to zoom in and snap away, each time finding another piece of staggering masonry. It really is an impressive structure and literally breathtaking at first sight.

Pretty awe inspiring. Things are fairly mundane until you turn a corner and see the imposing structure. Always seemed pretty busy with crowds, but not in an overbearing way.

One of the most fancy and amazing buildings I've ever seen. I could say only wow when I saw it and left staring for half an hour. If your in Belgium, you must visit this place! Take your time, sit on the train and go see one of the most amazing and unspoiled sightseens in the world.

We were very lucky to stay close to the beautiful Leuven, so we had a great opportunity to admire this gorgeous building every evening for three days Ina row. This is the finest example of the most ornate and intricate Gothic architecture. You will be amazed with its elegance and unbeatable beauty. It is hard to believe how the masters... More

Although the town has much more to offer , this building alone makes a visit to Leuven worthwhile simply stunning especially if you catch it in the soft evening sunlight. A must see, absolutely covered in intricate stone carving each vignette telling its own story – might be worth taking a pair of binoculars to see the detail!!!

Destroyed during the second World War, this building was finished restoring again in the Eighties. You will see it as the people in the Middle Ages saw it.
