Leuven Town Hall, Belgium

Centre of Grote Market of Leuven is an intricately decorated massive structure; it is the town hall of Leuven, Belgium. It is the most stunning town hall I have seen in twelve European countries I have toured so far. It is a fifteenth century town hall, the present façade is seventeenth century version completely rebuilt according to previous details.

The laced structure looked stunning against the blue sky. Statues are distributed throughout the façade of the town hall. The building has ornate stone carved façade depicting several scenes from Bible. It has three main stories, each representing famous personalities of different time line.

What I read was: the first layer depicted famous people in the local history of the city, second layer has saints and symbolic figures and the third layer has the Counts of Leuven. A guided tour would be most helpful here. I couldn’t avail one because the tour in English language is conducted only on some specific days. Here are some detailed shots from the façade of the Town hall of Leuven of Belgium.
