Description“Cultural city walk”

Spend a day discovering Liège and its exceptional culture and heritage.
This one-day excursion has been specially designed for groups traveling by train (or coach) who prefer more independence when it comes to tours, while still benefiting from the advice, recommendations, and anecdotes of a professional guide.

Your excursion will begin in the luxurious setting of the modern and futuristic Liège-Guillemins TGV station. This masterpiece of grandiose architecture was designed by Santiago Calatrava, the renowned Catalan architect. With its glass and metal vaulted ceiling, this icon of the city attracts myriad tourists and photographers, making it the most photographed monument in Liège.

A remarkable exhibition then offers you two options.
  • Option 1: After two historical exhibitions ('Tutankhamun: Discovering the forgotten pharaoh' and 'Napoleon, beyond the myth'), this time, Europa Expo is presenting an immersive and lighthearted exhibition called 'I Love Japan'. Embark on an exciting journey to discover the different faces of Japan, a country with a rich culture with traces of ancestral traditions. From gastronomy to religion, not forgetting Tokyo, Godzilla, and manga, an immersive journey allows you to explore every corner of the Nippon archipelago.
  • Option 2: A retrospective and monographic exhibition presenting the Greek artist Costa Lefkochir awaits you. This is the chance to admire some of the artist's most famous pieces, which chart his career and life in a non-chronological and humanist way. These pieces represent concerns, as well as research, that form a whole. The artist calls upon the creative and artistic talent of everyone during the itinerary, by inviting anyone who is interested to contribute to a common piece which will be published.
After strolling around Parc Boverie, spend lunchtime at Union Nautique. Boasting a great location on the banks of the Meuse, this establishment boasts a huge terrace with an exceptional view over the banks of the Ardent City. This restaurant's welcoming setting is ideal for a well-deserved lunch break.  Then head back to the city center, enjoying the amazing views offered while strolling along the banks.

For the next stage of your afternoon visit, two new options are on offer. Depending on your interests and preferences, you can choose to discover the collections at the Museum of Walloon Life or take a stroll through the historic city center.

Before catching a train from Liège-Saint-Lambert train station, round out the day by tasting an authentic Liège waffle at the gourmet 'Une Gaufrette Saperlipopette' store.

Duration: One day.
