City of contrasts
The Ardent City holds some great treasures. Among those, one of the most spectacular railway stations in Europe.
As a former Principality, Liège still keeps the vestiges of its flourishing past. Most of the city’s cultural venues are worth seeing for their beautifully superb renovations.
However, upon your arrival in the City of Prince-Bishops aboard one of our Thalys trains, you will set foot in the future! The new Guillemins station designed by Calatrava is a monumental cathedral of glass and steel and one of the most spectacular railway stations in Europe. This architectural feat could be a symbol of the wild excesses across the city: that of the supporters of Standard in the hellish Sclessin, of a trip to the famous Carré or of the festive atmosphere during a 15th of August evening. Just like its music festival, the city certainly deserves its label of “ardent”!
In October, Liège also hosts the largest funfair in Belgium, and every Sunday, one of the largest markets in Europe: La Batte.
As for gastronomy, do not leave the city without tasting its famous Liège meatballs!
