Grote Markt (Leuven)

The Grote Markt listen (Dutch for "Grand Square") of Leuven, Belgium is situated between the Oude Markt (Old Square) and the Fochplein (Foch Square, named for French Marshal Ferdinand Foch) and near both the Bondgenotenlaan (Avenue of the Allied Forces) and the Muntstraat (Mint Street).

Its location on the crossing of some of Leuven's most famous and most touristic spots makes the Grote Markt one of the city's busiest squares. However, it has been pedestrian-friendly for some years; only public transportation buses from De Lijn are allowed to use the square.
