Our splendid Town Hall

The town hall is Leuven's pride and joy.

Moreover, it's one of the world's best-known Gothic town halls. It took three architects and thirty years to build it.

Leuven's 'Hall of Fame' features 236 statues, which were only added to the façade after 1850.

The Great Beguinage

The beguinage dates from the 13th century.

It consists of a series of romantic alleys, courtyards, gardens and parks with dozens of houses and convents built from traditional sandstone.

The Great Beguinage was listed as UNESCO world heritage in 1998.

‘The Last Supper’ in Saint Peter's Church

'The Last Supper', painted by Dirk Bouts between 1464 and 1468, is an absolute masterpiece.

Dirk Bouts was one of the Flemish Primitives and was also known as ‘the painter of silence’.
