Super impressive building! Lived in leuven for 12 months and always found some new detail in this building! Beautiful by day and stunning by night. Also can't really be missed as it is right in the middle 👍

If you are in Leuven, you have to visit this. I can tell you this building is extraordinarily beautiful. Fantastic architecture. It's very tall huge and looks really beautiful and pretty in the night with all the lights on. Unfortunately we couldn't make it during Christmas as I heard it's the best during Christmas but nevertheless it was still lovely.... More

Had a guided tour on Sunday afternoon. The guide was excellent and spoke in 3 languages so the tour overran. This is a very lovely building and the Mayor 's office was interesting. Belgians can get married here but otherwise it is not greatly used. Worth a visit.

Pictures cannot do justice to this masterpiece of architecture. The building has not got a important meaning but I fell in love with his appearance

Rain or shine, cold or not so cold, this place is always beautiful. Whichever angle you look into, it is always perfect. The details from smallest to most intricate are just breath taking. It has such a happy atmosphere!

The inside of this town hall is quite beautiful, at least to my taste. I enjoyed especially the rooms with many red comfy armchairs surrounded by gorgeous paintings. Wow! In one room, there is a gorgeous chimney made of gold or bronze and a golden statue at the top. There is a little park in the middle of the town... More
