Holiday rentals Liege - the cultural capital of Wallonia
Liege, the capital city of Liege Province, is one of Belgium's most lovely cities – a cultural hotspot with plenty to offer all kinds of holidaymaker. With a Liege holiday rental you can discover over a millenium of history, and visit the city's many churches, such as Saint Jacques, originally a stop for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela, or Saint Barthelemy, which dates back to the 11th century. For the best views across the city, climb almost four hundred steps up the Montagne de Bueren at the Coteaux de la Citadelle. It's worth renting a holiday apartment Liege on the first weekend of October is La Nocturne, when the slopes and streets of the citadelle are lit up and there is a grand firework display. Other special times to come are the 15th of August, when there is a huge folk festival in the city, or during the electro-rock festival Les Ardentes, the jazz festival Jazz à Liege, or during the Christmas market, which begins just before advent. The market at Liege is one of the most loved in Belgium, comparable to Lille, or Nuremberg.
Holiday apartments Liege are not far from the Dutch and German borders – it's easy to visit Maastricht, with its ancient landmarks and buzzing nightlife, or Liege's twin city Aachen, where you can stand on the border between the three countries. A little closer to home is Belgium's oldest city, Tongeren. Why not rent a bike and do a cycle tour of the surrounding area?
Another highlight of having a holiday rental in Liege is the local cuisine: deliciously indulgent Liege waffles, marzipan cakes, local cheeses and stews, Jupiler beer – that's Liege's local brew, but the Wallonia region produces a huge range of internationally known as well as smaller beer varieties – and peket, a local version of genever. All of these specialities can be found in cafes and restaurants to suit every budget in town. In the evenings, make your way to Le Carré, where there are plenty of great pubs and bars.
