Liege ... The Burning City.


A city that never sleeps and never misses an opportunity to party!

In order to prepare your stay in our B&B or your city-trip to Liege, here is a small summary of "things to see and do". 


Cultural city!


Whether you want to go to a cinema, a theatre, an opera, a concert or a museum, Liège can satisfy you.

Here are the main links to these cultural players:



It is almost impossible to list all the museums in the city of Liège, as the choice is so vast and the subjects so varied. 


Here are the "must-sees", knowing that many smaller ones are also worth a visit.



Religious city


Liege, baptized "the city of 116 steeples" by Robert Ruwet, still has an impressive number of religious buildings to venture into.


Here is a small selection.

First of all, a few minutes from our home: the Church of Saint Vincent. 

In the city centre, the Cathedral of Saint Paul and its Treasury, the Basilica of Saint Martin, the fully renovated Collegiate Church of Saint Barthélemy, and the Collegiate Church of Saint-Jacques, a remarkable building in the flamboyant Gothic style.

To go further, the Visitez Liège website allows you to search by point of interest and book guided tours.  It's a goldmine! 


And if you prefer more unusual guided tours, don't hesitate to call on the Liege Greeters!  I had the chance to visit the historic centre with Anselmus, a real treat!
