Coteaux de la Citadelle, Liege

Historic Walking Area · Tourist Spot
Take an exploratory walking tour of the most scenic part of the city at Coteaux de la Citadelle, which offers five different routes meandering past courtyards, terraces, historic homes, and vantage points. Pick up a map of the routes from the tourist office in the city center; this is the best way to find the beginning of the walkways, since they are hidden from view in certain spots. At some point in all the routes the pathways lead you behind buildings, down alleys, and through open spaces, making the walking tour feel like a treasure hunt. Part of one of the pathways requires you to climb steep steps at Montagne de Bueren. Be sure to don your best walking shoes to keep your feet comfortable on this city adventure.

  • There are 4 way marked walking routes which are categorized and 3 star in Michelin guide! Our walk started at Degrés des dentellières (the street of Lacemakers who lived just beside the townhall, and of such importance was their art). A rather unsuspecting entrance on Rue Pierreuse leads to some stairs which lead to a brick building in ruins. Yes, that was a part of the citadel. A few more stairs from here leads to the Terraces!
  • Fantastic place for a beautiful walk!
  • Incontournable à Liège. Highly recommended to visitors, photographers and locals who want a contrasting area, so near from the city but giving a really different feeling.
  • Beautiful and peaceful place not far from the city center
  • A nice promenade where you can see the historic wall of the city. Beautifull sight seeing and very peacefull
