“Not a simple railway station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A place who need a visit. The architect Calatrava made a "chef d'oeuvre". A beautiful place in the city center. Great vision in the night. Coming in Liege it's a big surprise.

“fascinating spacy star trek trainstation in Liege”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Nice example of the works of the spanisch architect Calatrava.
Very dificult for the window cleaners, because of the smog of the Searing industries...
Definately worth a detour for a visit!

“modern to futuristic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The station looks brilliant from afar, and fantastic when you go inside as the curves and futuristic design draws you in with the travelling crowd. It is indeed an impressive design. The symmetry of the lines of the station really draws your attention and it is very 'spacious' and plenty of light streams in. You should definitely go there and take the opportunity to get good pictures of this modern classic 'gare'.

“It makes much bigger impression live than on pics.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

If you are arriving in Liege by train from the west part of the country most probably you will have to go through this station. But the other sightseeing places like citadel and palace are located close to another station: Liege-Palais - far less eye-catching one.

Hate it or love it, but for fans of modern architecture it is a must-see. One of greatest train stations in Europe.

“What a beautiful place for an exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We visited The Golden Sixties Exhibition which celebrates all the changes that took place during that decade - and it took us 3 hours to enjoy all that was offered by the exhibition. It was very interesting to see the 60s from a different point of view as we were in England and this exhibition was situated in Belgium.

Afterwards we had hoped to eat in one of the many restaurants/cafes on the concourse, but they were all full with happy people enjoying their meals in a relaxed manner.

It would be good to think my local station in England could be so passenger friendly. The Liegeois have had to put up with lots of upheaval during the rebuilding of their station, and we hope they are happy with it. It is certainly beautiful.
