Map THE HILLSIDES OF THE CITADEL (*** Michelin Guide)
Take a walk through history along footpaths and old walls, within a stone’s throw of the Saint Lambert Square, in the heart of the city of Liege... Liege, a town renowned for arts, which has though also charming hidden spots... With more than 60 listed monuments and 5 protected places of interest, the hillsides of the citadel bear in many ways witness to the bygone urban landscape. Lying inside the town walls since the 13th century, the hill slope has always been part of the city. Spectacular monuments can be discovered, like the famous Montagne de Bueren stairs or the panoramic views from the Citadel boulevard. Walking on the hillsides can also be an opportunity to make unusual encounters and have new, more intimate experiences, like entering the city behind the scenes, beyond the curtain of aligned façades, or making one’s way across a warren of courtyards, staircases, and alleys and reaching the broad daylight and quiet of the terraces or gazing from very nearby upon the outlines of the town roofs... A privileged place for any visitor in search of nature and quietness, in the very heart of the city !
