Liège is Wallonia’s largest city and the third most populous city in Belgium after Brussels and Antwerp.
Situated at the confluence of the Meuse and Ourthe rivers and at a stone’s throw from the Netherlands and Germany, Liège is a vibrant and jovial city known for its varied cultural wealth and remarkable architectural heritage.
Called “the ardent city” because of the warmth and enthusiasm of its inhabitants, Liège has become an important economic and commercial place-to-be featuring an international airport, a high-speed railway station designed by Calatrava, the 3rd European inland port and a widely developed highway network. The University, a convention centre, several shopping areas and a diversified industrial fabric – space technology being one of the main activities – complete the picture.
Amateurs of good food will be happy to visit one of the many restaurants in Liège. Why not try and taste the local cuisine based upon typical products of the region such as boudin blanc, Liège sirup, Herve cheese, “pèket”, …?
Last but not least: Liège is a candidate for the organisation of the international exhibition in 2017.
