Nice pictures

Hors-Château has some interesting buildings. It's one my favorite part of the city.

True, I don't think I remember a single ugly building in the street. Probably the most picturesque part of Liège.

Somewhat interesting article about Liège (aside from the religious stuff):

http://oriensjournal.com/archives/vo...t-without-hope
For Liège is, in a dignified First World way, poor. Being in Western Europe, it does possess a more or less functional welfare system; [...]

No obvious landmarks exist to attract the spendthrift proletarian sightseer. The publicity given by the Liège Tourist Bureau to a museum of washing-machines indicates a certain desperation. Outside summer, the climate is pretty dismal; and even guidebooks admit to how little English is heard. The few foreigners I saw included a young American corporate type in an expensive fawn suit, almost dancing with rage about how hard he found it to communicate with the locals.
To be honest, I think it's really worth a trip. Not as beautiful and clean as some of the other Belgian cities (the car park did smell like urine ) but still cool and gritty.

I found the article a bit exaggerated. Especially the "no-ones gets an i-pod" part.




Those stupid hippies protesting on Place Saint-Lambert are ruining the view, it's such a shame.

Btw I hope you'll keep posting your pictures here and not only on the Belgian forum

Liege is worth visiting just for the magnificent station courtesy of Calatrava.

My favorite part of Liege is a stretch from the Pierreuse quarter to Outremeuse (Roture), tons of little cobblestoned windy streets... but it seems no tourists go over there.

And the article about the poverty is stupid ad overblown for the sake of affirming a stereotype, especially about the Ipods, just go in the richer hoods (Boverie, Cointe, around Sart Tilman) and it's full of "hipsters" and people jogging with their Ipods on.

There's a fine and modern youth hostel at Outremeuse. It's situated in an old cloister. I can recommend it to anywone who's looking for a cheap room in the city.
