Great town hall

Stunning looking building, with numerous statues on the facade. We didn't get a chance to tour inside. Must see if in Leuven.

Leuven's town hall dates from the second half of the XV century, it's a very complex and detailed building due to the amount of statues that has. It's across St. Peter's Church and the assemble of the two buildings is just overwhelming. 100% recommended. Deviate if necessary.

I have been to Leuven three times now and apart from some great bars, this town hall is also a reason I return. The detail is amazing.

Looks fantastic from every corner of it. Is especially beautiful at night time. Located right in the center of the town.

We visited Town Hall with an excursion which takes place daily at 3pm. We liked it very much! The building of 15th century in such a great condition!

Next to the church at the Great Market in Leuven, you'll find the city hall in gothic style. Apparently every emptu part of the wall was filled with little statues reperesenting town celebrities. It's the kind of building which we call masonry lace...

This is, for me, the most beautiful Town Hall in Belgium. Haven't been inside yet, but the outside is allready wonderful to look at.

We were just walking around and ended up finding this beauty. It's a must see just to enjoy the view of all the architecture.

We visited Leuven in December to see a friend & the Christmas lights on the town hall once lit up at night were enchanting.An impressive building at any time but the lights just gave it an extra something.Didn't have time to go inside,will do that another time on another visit.
