Lüttich/Liège, Belgium

Hello everyone!

Here are some pics from my day trip in Lüttich/Liège (Belgium) in April 2009. The city is the principal economic and cultural centre of Wallonia with about 190.000 inhabitants.

Enjoy the photos!

Looks kind of "British" ...in a good way.

Nice city, great pics.
Didn't you visit the fantastic new train station Liège Guillemins which is designed by Calatrava?

Hi!

Unfortunately I didn't visit the new train station because I did not have enough time on that day.

Comfortably numb, I also thought about it looking a bit British . The city looks nice, with a share of some nasty 1970s architecture... some parts of it look a bit neglected, but all in all I'd say the atmosphere in the photos is positive... and good photos I have to say... especially those panoramic ones.

I second that notion, some of the architecture can look very British indeed.

These are great shots and it's nice to see the non-postcard side of the city too. Thank you for sharing!

Did you enjoy Liège and are there any other Belgian cities you visited?

I can still remember the first time driving through Liege, I was stunned by the boulevard along the Meuse.. so incredibly urban! I'd rather die than living there but still very very impressive!

I think you have a missperception of this city.

I even cant believe that you can say stuff like that.

I honnestly rather live there than in Groningen.

In my post I only mentioned the boulevard, so I wasn't talking about the entire city
I am aware of the fact that the older parts of Liege are beautiful and of course I'd be happy to live there
