This is probably one of the most beautiful buildings in Belgium. Is amazingly beautiful and the square is worth walking. We did the guided tour and is quite nice as well.

The Town Hall is the most impressive building in Leuven. The building walls are covered with statues - all created with fine details. Could stare at the building for hours (if it wasn't so cold...).
