On a weekend getaway in southern Limburg in the Netherlands, we wanted to get that pure holiday feeling you only achieve by going someplace where they speak another language, so we decided to head for Liège for the day. On arrival at Liege-Guillemins you are completely overwhelmed by the incredibly gorgeous architecture of the station roof, as seen in The Fifth Estate. As far as modern stations go it is by far the most impressive I've seen so far. The walk into town was a bit boring and they were renovating and working on the roads everywhere, which took away the little atmosphere that part of town has. Once in the city centre the walk was very rewarding though: it is quaint and has many examples of typical gorgeous old Belgian architecture, has an amazing offer of great food shops and stalls, and there are some very beautiful churches and courtyards well worth a visit. Would not return, but glad I went.
