​In the 19th century, the city of Liège grew into one of the richest in Belgium, which is still reflected in the beautiful architecture in the center. The historic center of Liège is one to be framed. It's not as picturesque as in the cities of Ghent and Antwerp, but that makes it just as special

Liège offers a mix of architecture, hills and a vibrant nightlife. In recent years, "la cité Ardente" has undergone a true metamorphosis. The city used to be known as dangerous. And while Liège still has a rough side, it is also home to beautiful medieval streets, extensive forests surrounding the city, emblematic buildings and a huge historical heritage.
Its rich industrial past is still visible in the many wooded slag heaps that surround the city, and there are still old  mines that can be visited.
In a few years' time, a tram line will cross the entire city, which will give the city even more allure, but for now we have to look beyond these works.
