Discover Liege and surroundings by car
As Belgium’s third largest city and one of the country’s most-important industrial centres, Liege is perhaps best known for its coal mining past. It’s a fascinating place to tour by car with popular attractions including the Palais des Princes-Evêques which houses the Law Courts and the seat of the Walloon government. While the interior of the palace is not open to visitors, you can take a stroll around the picturesque courtyards complete with arcade walkways.
While you’re in the area, be sure to also pass by the popular Museum of Walloon Life with the adjoining Museum of Religious Art exhibiting notable works from Liege churches and the Meuse region. If you want to park up and explore the Old Town by foot, Féronstrée runs from the east side of the market square to the Church of Saint-Barthélemy and will take you past many 18th century buildings which still decorate the city.
You won’t be short of historic buildings to explore in Liege but if you want to venture further afield, the Ourthe Valley to the south of Leige is one of the prettiest regions in Belgium. Here, you’ll find quaint little villages nestled along the Ourthe riverbank as well as castles, windmills and plenty of green countryside. Don’t miss a short road trip to the health resort of Spa just a half hour drive south-east of Liege city. Located on the wooded slopes of the Ardennes, the natural springs have attracted visitors for centuries with many of the old baths still visible today.
Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp can also be found to the north-west of Liege and are within easy reach of Liege if you want to start planning a daytrip or two.
Driving in Liege
Throughout Liege and the rest of Brussels you should stay on the right hand side of the road unless you are overtaking. When navigating unfamiliar roads, take your time and be sure to follow all the local signs as best you can. Also use natural landmarks such as the Meuse River to give you a sense of direction and help you find your bearings.
On-street parking is available in Liege but this is limited with a maximum stay of around two hours. If you want to stay in the city for a longer time, it’s a good idea to head for one of the many unlimited off-street parking lots.
