You cannot miss the Town Hall, when you visit Leuven. It is one of the most beutiful Gothic building built in 15th century. It is located in the center of the city at 'Main market' square. The 236 statues were added to the façade in 19th century.

This building is such a gem in a beautiful place. Leuven is a place with a young vibe since it is a college town and the building is perfectly located in the center of it all. The architecture is very interesting and truly captivating

Getting off the train station and walking towards the central area of town, you get a wonderful view of the building. It's intricate decorations are illuminated by the sun all day and many people sit on benches nearby to eat lunch and appreciate the historical building. It's a must see in leuven and there are guided tours.

Amazing building. Tour was a bit disappointing as the guide's English was touch-and-go. But it was good to wander about inside anyhow and see the interior, and we did get a bit of information about it. Worth the price.

Must visit when visiting Leuven. After a big change of the Brussels Town Hall it was no longer the biggest one. Though it is still the the most beautifull gothic one in belgium

It is truly one of the most amazing town halls I've ever seen. We couldn't get inside, but exterior is breathtaking.
