Slip on your comfortable shoes for this two-hour walking tour of Liège. Setting off from the city centre, your tour guide shall lead you through the history of Liège from gothic cathedrals to Art Nouveau houses; past the birth place of novelist, Georges Simenon, and around the remains of the ancient citadel. You will discover the art and antiquity of the city and visit the hippest neighbourhood by strolling through Le Carré’s labyrinth of bar and shop-lined streets. You will enjoy a view of the recently refurbished 16th-century Curtius museum and yards, rue Hors-Château, with its classified heritage sites and famous cul-de-sac, the Place du Marché, le Perron, and the City Hall. The tour will reach its climax when you arrive at La Violette, Liège Town Hall where you will join the conference welcome reception. As time is limited during the guided tour, there will be no opportunities to access the museums.
