It is very impressive to wander down the street and finally get to this square. The town Hall and surrounding buildings are spectacular. There are cafes around the edges or just down the street is the longest bar in Europe!

Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to see inside as we were only here for the week end. This stunning building looks spectacular when lit in the evening

Beautifull, outside and inside. IMPORTANT: The tours happen only at some hours of the day. The tour guide was funny.

It's a really amazing city hall, which can very well be classified as the best in Belgium. It's especially beautiful during the Christmas season when it's decorated and the whole place in front of it is transformed into a winter wonderland.

Stunning from the outside, indoors is a functional working city hall. Lots of nice symbolic pieces to show to visitors (tapestries and the like), a good way of getting a stronger sense for the city's history and character.

Don't go to Leuven without walking into the centre. It is beautiful. Marvel at the spender of the building as you enjoy a drink in the many bars and cafes in the market square

We got a tour through the town hall by a darling old lady called Cecile. She speakes Flemish and English both very good and she is incredibly funny. The tour was supposed to last an hour, but it eventually lasted one and a half hour....More

So I'm not sure how this review will go. I have been to this square many times. I've only seen the outside. Amazing statues.

Really enjoyed this tour. Top class guide. Worth the €3 paid. The history of the statues on the Town Hall is really interesting. There are also a number of fascinating historical portraits that are worth seeing.
