Located at the heart of Europe, the city of Liège borders on the towns of Maastricht, Aachen and Hasselt (Meuse-Rhine Region) and is part of the Greater Region, which includes the border regions of Germany, Belgium, France and Luxembourg.

Liège represents a true logistical and strategic crossroads and is so a breeding ground for new ideas, creativity and research innovation, thanks, in particular, to the presence of its innovative economic industries (from start-ups to large companies), its research centres and its teaching and research institutions, as the University of Liège, named the « Alma Mater ».

Known as the « Fiery city » for its cultural abundance and its warm and festive atmosphere, Liège is the must-see Walloon destination.

Welcome to Liège, a cosmopolitan city on a human scale…

Want to extend your stay in Liège ?

As a cultural city, Liège will not disappoint you with its wide range of tourist attractions: museums, exhibitions, monuments, churchs and cathedral, « cul-de-sacs » and traditions… A stroll around the « Coteaux de la Citadelle » (The Hillsides of Citadel), the countryside in the city, will give you a panoramic view of the city and allow you to discover the famous « Montagne de Bueren », famous for its many steps to climb.

Don’t forget to test the traditional cuisine of Liège : the famous Liège waffles, « boulets liégeois » or Liège coffee… not forgetting « pécket », the typical Liège spirit or the local beers.
