Description

A feat of engineering characteristic of the breakthroughs of the 19th century, the Montagne de Bueren allowed a direct link between the barracks and citadel in the city centre. The name of this flight of stairs, boasting no less than 374 steps, is evocative of the aborted overthrow carried out by 600 men of Franchimont. Led by Vincent de Bueren and Gossuin de Streel, they attempted during the night of 29th October 1468, to capture Charles the Bold and Louis XI. Contrary to the common belief among the people of Liège, the 600 men of Franchimont never took this route.
