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
