Liege is both a province in Wallonia and the capital city of that province. Bisected by the Meuse River, Liege, the city, was once heavily industrial, leaving parts of town still feeling gritty. However now it is one of Wallonia’s biggest cultural destinations, with a handful of museums, cathedrals, and the stunning Palace of the Prince Bishops of Liege. With a number of excellent restaurants and hotels, the city of Liege makes a great base for exploring the rest of the province.
There’s plenty to explore. Liege is home to the fascinating and UNESCO listed Blegny Mine, a number of interesting military history sites, the Spa-Francorchamps Formula One racetrack, the spa town that gave modern spa’s their name, and Belgium’s most beautiful national park.
As if that wasn’t enough, there are plenty of castles and chateaux, and beer brewing abbeys dotted throughout the hilly terrain. We’ve eaten some of our best Belgian meals in Liege and the scenery never ceases to impress us. This is one Belgian province you don’t want to miss.
We share all the best things to do in Liege (both the city and the province) including the best Liege hotels, and the best restaurants in Liege, Belgium.
