Introducing Liège

At first glance, Wallonia’s largest city has a miserably glum look that gets even worse in its soul-crushing industrial suburbs. However, it doesn’t take much scratching to discover an entirely different Liège, a living architectural onion with layer upon layer of history lying just beneath the disfigured surface. Proudly free-spirited citizens are disarmingly friendly and no Belgian city bubbles with more joie de vivre. Love it or loathe it, Liège is quirky, unique and oddly compulsive.
