You may either take the stairs or take the hill. However, you can simply reach the top if you have got the car. It is a wonderful place with an amazing view on a large part of the city kf Liege. Make sure you go there in a good weather.

This climb is really only to be recommended to those who would enjoy the challenge of climbing the 370 steps. The view from the top, as other reviewers have noted, is pleasant rather than breathtaking. If time is short, I would instead recommend a walk along the river Meuse (which bisects the city) - there are many seats from which... More

Too bad I couldnt make my way up there due to limited time. I only managed to climb e bit. Steep but definitely worth. Even from the ground, the view is something to expect. When you get a bit bored of old buildings, you expect something different. Montage de Bueren offers that different vibe. A must:)

Steep stairway in the center of Liège. We counted more than360 steps. This stairway is famous for having been the way taken in 1468, by some 600 Franchimontois (men from Franchimont) with their leader Vincent de Bueren to attack the Burgundian army of Charles the Bold and King Lois XI; their attack was a complete failure and they were all...

Over 300 steps take you on top of the city where you can enjoy the view. If you want to sit down you can do so either on the steps or the benches on top. As I said in the title: it is truly a work out to get to the top (if you're not very fit), but it is... More

The trip to the view point is followed by many stairs. But once at the top, the view is beautiful but a big part of it is blocked by uncut bushes.

Have climbed up the steps of several occasions in the past 30 years and am still amazed at the views of Liege from the top on a sunny day. Very spectacular and definitely a place to visit for those not too infirm.

I climbed all 374 stairs up and 374 steps down, wouldn't recommend on a wet day as they are slippery and you don't want to be tumbling down them!! Good view at top of steps, but carry on up to war memorial (turn right at top of steps) for a much better view

We climbed all 374 stairs with 2 or 3 stops on the way. On the stairs you can take a look at the architecture of those houses built on the hill, at their beautiful, small and intimate gardens. On top of the hill you will find... other stairs and a monument. From there you have an exquisite view of the... More

Tip: go uphill via the Rue Pierreuse or better the foot path east of that street, and come down via these famous stairs. Of course last time we did this walk the sun was shining and this contributed to the positiveness. But even in winter this is a charming place for a walk.
