Liege, the Ardent City, a city that never sleeps
Only 1 hour from Brussels, 1 hour from France, 30 minutes from Germany and 15 minutes from the Netherlands, Liege is an internationally-connected city.
The city of Liege is alive and bursting with energy around the clock, yet its wealthy historical past has not trapped it with traditions.
Its historical heritage has undergone successful renovations such as the very contemporary Liège-Guillemins TGV Train Station designed by famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
The art of living in Liege
A host of folkloric activities animate the city all year long, such as the festival on 15 August, held primarily in the "Outre-Meuse" neighbourhood, which was one of Georges Simenon's (the Belgian Agatha Christie) favourite neighbourhoods. Follow in his footsteps across the city and discover elements of his world of romanesque literature!
Join the crowds on Sundays along the Meuse and enjoy the La Batte Sunday Market, Liège. In the evenings, meet the friendly and hospitable locals in a bar or typical café.
There are countless ways to explore the city: on foot, by bike, by boat or by tourist train. Take your pick!
