Unbelieveble detail

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.

The Stadhuis is probably the most impressive building in Leuven and is certainly a stand-out feature. Certainly a lot architecturally different to others you can see in Belgium. Surrounding streets are not as charming or antiquated as those of Ghent, Brussels or Bruges but they still offer a good deal of shops and restaurants

Pretty amazing great architecture and rather impressive to look at. These great buildings are always better to view on a sunny day, as it was when we were there

This was a great city that was providing live music throughout the evening of our visit, there were also street musicians providing an alternative to musicians on the stage

A very attractive building, beautifully restored and preserved, a symbol of Leuvens long history and ability to endure and survive war and changing values. It must have been so impressive when first built, visible evidence of Leuvens role as a great wealthy trading City and World renown centre of learnin.

Beautiful gothic town hall of Leuven. Open to the public on many occasions (“open monuments days”, exhibitions, …). Located on the main market square, with lots of terraces of pubs to enjoy the view. Try to combine your visit with a visit of the St.Pieter's church (also located on the main market square).
