Create an itinerary including Montagne de Bueren
Montagne de Bueren is a 374-step staircase in Liège, Belgium. The staircase is named after Vincent de Bueren, who defended Liège against an attack by the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold in the 15th century. It was built in 1881 to honour the 600 soldiers who died in the battle.
In 2013, Montagne de Bueren was ranked as #1 on The Huffington Post's list of Most Extreme Staircases.
In July 2020, in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Belgium, Belgian explorer and adventurer Louis-Philippe Loncke ascended and descended the staircase 135 times carrying a 15 kg backpack, simulating an ascent of Mount Everest. The 9000m climb, which took 65 hours 30 minutes, was meant to show that one could still "trouver des défis physiques près de chez soi" (find physical challenges close to home).

  • Actually visited these steps a number of years ago, 2011, on my to do again list. Was a worth while experience, views at top are excellent. Walk around citadel was very interesting.

  • Here is the best part of Liege. Many steps to go up and see the view of Liege. I like this place and the location near it is also good.

  • Montagne de Bueren is a 374-step staircase in Liège, Belgium. The staircase is named after Vincent de Bueren, who defended Liège against an attack by the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold in the 15th century. It was built in 1881 to honor the 600 soldiers who died in the battle. Climbing to the top in one go takes a toll on your whole body! If you can make it, means your heart is in good condition :)
  • Great flight of stairs with some really interesting buildings on the way. Brilliant views over Liège if you carry on to the monument when you get to the top of the steps.
  • Amazing city Liege. Climbing these stairs was "one" of the highlights of the day. Great place looks scary but actually isn't saw a lot of folks with families climbing here and then relaxing in the gardens above. One can catch a panoramic view of the city from up there.
  • A beautiful but sporty sight. Tip for tourists, take water with you and don't hurry too much.
  • Wonderful view of the city and a peaceful place to walk, however the uphill is bit challenging
