The easiest way to Liege (by far) is by train. With service from Frankfurt, Brussels or Paris airports, it beats driving or flying (no commercial air service!) the station itself is beautiful and convenient. Avis/budget rents cars here (Hertz is in town). Local Taxis do not take credit cards and Uber isn't found in Liege. In addition to stairs, there... More

If you enjoy architecture, you will not be disappointed to visit the Liege station. There is an exhibition inside the station...the type of exhibits vary depending when you visit. You should be able to see what's available online. There is a starbucks, chocolatier, sandwich and newsagents inside the station.

The architect who built the subway station at ground zero in New York Calatrava has also built the train station in Liege. it is not as impressive as in New York but you will recognise the style. The one in Liege is way too big for this provincial town, with low claustrophobic ceilings downstairs and no protection from the weather... More

Impressive, but verry expensive construction for a not so bussy train station The shape of the construction is beautifull , but who is going to clean all that glass and the white concrete and steel painted construction

This is another masterpiece from Calatrava, but I wonder if he expected the station to act as a sort of amplifier. Stand in front of the station when a train arrives or leaves and the noise is very very loud. Also how can the city of Liege keep the place clean?

This building is one of the more impressive ones in Liege, very modern, beautiful, and yet very functional.

We went to Liège to see the exhibition of the stone guards of Chinese Emperor Qi. We combined it with a visit to the beautiful Guillemins station - amazing! On the other hand, the glass roof starts to get dirty and the white beams collect lots of dust - some cleaning is in order! However, the worst surprise was the... More

The Guillemins train station is nice looking and easy to navigate. One can easily get around even with suitcases. On the down side I would say there are not enough seats for waiting passengers on the various platforms. Sometimes, depending on the weather, drops of water can drop from the roof (condensation, I guess).

Train station as a tourist attraction? Oh yes. This station looks good from inside and out. Every step means a new view and yet another photo..don't fill up your phone or tablet. I could've spent my day here looking for yet another view. Seems to be popular with art students and photographers with good reason. Watch people coming and going,big... More
