Leuven Town Hall

Leuven is a fascinating city, rich in stunning architecture and its Town Hall is no different. Situated in the Grote Markt, the main market square, this enticing building attracts both history buffs and architecture lovers. Built in the Brabantine Late Gothic style it’s one of the most important landmarks in the city, renowned for its ornate architecture and lace-like details. This is a must-see in Leuven and you’ll easily be mesmerised by the stunning sight of this historical building.
 

A living piece of history

Constructed during the 15th century, Leuven Town Hall is known for its ornately carved exteriors, which features 236 19th century sculptures of important local figures and patron saints. Of the 236 statues, there are 220 men and 16 women, and the bottom floor you can see famous scientists, artists and historical figures from Leuven, dressed in Burgundian garb. Above them stands the city’s patron saints, and further up you’ll see the dukes and counts of Brabant. The towers primarily feature biblical figures. Today, the Town Hall merely has a ceremonial function after the city’s administrative services moved in 2009 to another location.
