It's more than 300 steps, but it's worth to try. The view on top is very nice. You can see the whole city of Liege, with green hills in the background. There is a drinking water machine for visitors on the top, too.

It's 374 steps to the top and worth an attempt by all visitors. The view of Liege from the top is spectacular. With a few stops to catch my breath, I will like to do this again when next I'm in Liege. My advice for prospective visitors is to be certain they have comfortable shoes.

If the time admits it, take the effort to climb the stairs. At the top, go right and climb a few extra steps up to the terrace of the monument. The view is amazing!

Huge amount of stairs in such a small street. Enjoy going up or doing a competition between friends. Try to go there during the special night where they light it with torch

it really is challenging but not to miss! The views of the city are beautiful and unique even as you can see the city and the beautiful Moselle. Plus: climbing the stairs is healthy!

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
