“Lovely town square”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Stunning buildings on every side. Nice cafes in the streets radiating from it. A must see in Leuven. Try to take a tour inside the buildings also

“a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

amazing buildings and lovely Christmas decorations, good shopping nearby and many coffee shops and bars to choose from. 3 children's merry-go-rounds playing music, plus brazier and waffle seller, plus nativity scene with real sheep alongside. A minimalist experience but interesting.

“Beautiful square with a lot of history”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Beautiful square in center of Leuven full of cafes and history, par for the course in most Belgian cities, but the university and beguinage just close by adds an extra element. There is an outdoor film festival in the summer, which, if you get decent weather, is pretty much a perfect night out.
