I'll be coming into Liege from Luxembourg by train in the morning, and leaving in the morning of the next day. I have a few questions:
1) Is there anything anyone can recommend doing in this period?
2) Also, could you give me precise instructions on how to get to the attractions or sights that you suggest, from the Liege train station? Which is a good area to stay?
3) Finally, can anyone recommend a good place to buy Belgium dark chocolates or any other Belgium-made snacks/foodstuffs in Liege, near the attractions you recommend, or near the train station?
I would like to meet other expats in Liège. I'm French and Canadian, actually, my mother tongue is French, but I like speaking English (I speak German too).
If you're francophone, you're more than welcome too!
I just miss the international touch and I am slowly creating a list of contact. Soon enough, I would like to invite the group to meet for a drink in Liège.
Please have a look at my blog and feel free to send me your feedback (or tips!)
Me and my wife will be arriving at Paris CDG on August 30, 2009.
From there I have to go to Maastricht to attend a conference.
One of my options is to get on Thalys from Paris Nord and change trains at
on the Thalys web site there is a station named Liege and another one named
What is the difference and which station I need to choose?
I have to go to Masstricht from Liege. Should I get a train or a taxi would be ok? What would be cost difference. Train will be 2 tickets ( me and wife)
If train, do I need to make reservations or I can buy ticket right then? Is there a web site (in english if possible) where I can check trains to Maastricht?
Thank you all
Hello! For our trip to the Spa-Francorchamps Belgian Grand Prix, my husband and I are looking for accommodation (hotel, bed and breakfast, room in private house, vacation house?) for Thursday night 27 August to Monday 31 August, preferably close to Verviers. We hope to keep the price under200 USD/night. We are not having luck in finding available rooms for this weekend, even now several months before the race! Yikes! Your suggestions are appreciated. If you have done this trip to the Grand Prix in the past, your comments on transportation options would be very welcome. We are hoping to travel only by train and bus but may consider renting a car if necessary or suggested.
I am coming over last minute for the game and as the hotels in Liege were all booked up I have booked a hotel in Ebn Email La Vallee Du Geer. I am not sure how far it is from Liege and how easy or expensive it will be to get a taxi back there after the game. It may even be easier to go for a post match drink nearer to the hotel. Appreciate some feedback thanks. We are coming over in a car so may drive into liege or near the ground and leave the car there and pick it up the next day when we drive back
My in-laws came to America from Belgium 75 years ago. They were french speakers. I have been looking for a translation of a fun word they would routinely use. Gous Gous. It would be used for the desert of a meal, sweets and candies, or by me as the good things of life.
Any background on this term? I have never heard it used outside of my wife's family. Joe
Besides visiting the city I would like to have a look at the famous Christmas village in Liege.
I want to try out my last chance for a 5 euro b-day ticket to travel by train.
It is worth the trip and does any one happens to be around?
I will be visiting Maastricht for 10 days and I am hoping to do some cycling in the Province Liege.I am thinking of possibly visiting Eupen or perhaps Verviers and cycling into the surrounding areas.Does anyone know if it is possible to rent a bike in Eupen or Verviers or would I be best served by renting a bike in Maastricht and then transporting it by train to Verviers?
