About Leuven

Leuven Town Hall

Leuven is world-famous for its 15th Century Gothic town hall. The city is first mentioned in relation to the Battle of Leuven, in the late 9th century, when a Viking army was defeated by Arnulf of Carinthia. It soon became a significant trading and manufacturing centre, famed for its quality linens.

Commercial activity continued to grow and by the Middle Ages Leuven had become an administrative centre under the rule of The Counts of Leuven.
