See the site of the 8th-century St. Lambert's Cathedral at Place Saint-Lambert, now a central square in front of the former Prince-Bishop's Palace. The foundation of the former cathedral, which stood here for over 1,000 years, is still preserved in the Archéoforum Museum just below the square. You can visit it by following a flight of stairs that lead down to the entrance. The square is also a bus hub for the city, so there is a constant stream of new faces moving through the attraction. The square can be toured quickly, so consider including it on a walking tour of the city. To visit Place Saint-Lambert and other attractions in Liege, use our Liege trip maker site .

  • Large building with a striking appearance and a large square with stairs and niveautjes and fountains. Though pressure, rich and poor, indigenous and all kinds of cultures walk there together. Also, don't forget to think about the following Board for the murdered people in 2011.

  • For me no great beauty, achievement rather missed... otherwise as it is located in front of the Palace of the princes, bishops, become the Palace of Justice and the provincial Palace. Next to the market square, close to the Town Hall (Town Hall), very nice place. Fortunately!

  • As one of the main attraction in Liège, I would be expecting much more. The Place St-Lambert is unfortunately insecure, dirty and to be frank, some greenery would make the area more livable.
  • It's great to be there with family
  • Nice religious place to visit. A remark in Liege
  • Beautiful square
  • Grande place
