Welcome to Liege!

Liege is Wallonia’s largest city, and the jewel of the French-speaking region of Belgium. Visitors to “La Cité ardente” are left with the same fervour the city’s slogan suggests - imparted by the city’s vibrant locals, and perhaps also the more than abundant local beers.

The city is in the midst of an impressive urban planning renewal. The dramatic new train station - designed by Calatrava - is the most visually stunning and immediately apparent example.

The vista from the top of the Montagne de Bueren, with it’s 374 steps is breathtaking and just a short walk away from Place Saint- Lambert, the historic seat of the Prince-Bishopric of Liege, once a state in the Holy Roman Empire.

Liege is situated at the crossroads of an important motorway and rail network linking it to neighboring France, Germany and the Netherlands and is home to the third largest river port of Europe. Liege is truly taking it’s place as an important European cultural and economic hub.

Whether you decide to come to Liege by car, train or plane, once here, the rest of Belgium and indeed Europe, is just a short trip away.
