Nice view from the tower

Nice building which you can explore with an audio guide. The highlight of the tour was the nice view from the tower.

Definitely worth a visit and great to duck inside on a pouring wet day! The whole of the city is picturesque.

I call it, The beautiful wedding cake , fit for a princess. Just sit on the steps and watch the world go by. Must see it at night when the lights are lighting, it looks different every season, summertime with the planted geraniums , Christmas time , it's twinkling with lights, and adorned with green garlands. Sit on the bench... More

It's impossible to not notice this structure as it is located in a busy part of the city. One should view this beautiful structure in broad daylight and in the evening. The guided tour is also a must-do because the it gives you access to the building and its fun to learn some facts about the Town Hall.

Very impressive building, magnificent architecture. Tours start every day at 15:00 and cost a few euros. In Dutch and English. Duration: 1-1.5 hours. One of the must-see attractions in Leuven for architecture lovers.

On my walk through Leuven the Town Hall did surprise me. A fantastic building with so much detail in the facades. Definately worth visiting.

We are big into architecture and Stadhuis doesn't disappoint. It isn't as big as the Grand Place in Brussels, but I think that it is much more detailed. The two are rather different and so are the cities. It's always nice to see married couples happily celebrated outside Stadhuis. If you are in Leuven you should definitely enjoy the outside... More

When you're in Leuven, this is totally a must see. Just beautiful to see how everything was carved by hand. If you don't have a guide, look up the stories depicted online, it's really interesting.
