The stations look when I come to town with train look very nice.

I havent seen a building like this before. The size from outside when I left train and walked out was that its so big.

Designed by the renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, the Liège-Guillemins railway station is a testament to contemporary architecture’s boundless creativity. Opened in 2009, the station’s design showcases Calatrava’s signature style, characterized by fluid lines, dynamic structures, and a harmonious blend of form and function.

I will look for some photo I had problem with getting the total building inside even from distance.

A stunningly beautiful station, the way the roof sheds colour throughout the station is stunning. The train station, the entrance point to a town shouldn't be it's best point but it is. A beautiful station, but the town is a messy construction site because of the tram, A lifeless soulless town.

This is an interesting designed bus and train station. It had a very modern design in a city that seems to be 40 years behind. It's a fun place to visit but this station seems to run well and had all you need when you arrive. Well run and fun to see.

Chegamos na estação às 11PM, local estava sem nenhuma segurança e funcionários da estação. O próximo trem era às 4:20am. Local estava muito inseguro, com movimentações bastante hostis das pessoas que estavam no local mas não eram passageiros. Se for viajar, importante evitar a estação à noite. Muito perigosa.

We arrived at the station at 11PM, there was no security or station staff. The next train was at 4:20am. The place was very unsafe, with very hostile movements of people who were there but were not passengers. If you are traveling, it is important to avoid the station at night. Very dangerous.

Must do when in Liege, really interesting and impressive train station. With its design it is quite easy to find the platforms, everything is very open. There are some sketchy people in front of the station but which station doesn't have sketchy people, right? Looks great for pictures.

The main train station in Liege. It certainly one of the most lavishly designed modernist and buildings I’ve seen. At €312 million, it’s also one of the most insanely expensive train stations I’ve heard of. The building looks like the offspring of a spaceport and a Belgian waffle with it criss-crossing lines that form the walls and roof, and futuristic looks, inside and out.

From a purely aesthetic point of view, I’d have gladly taken the one hour ride from Brussels just to see this work of art. The facilities at the station aren’t too bad either.

The first time we saw Liège Guillemins railway station, which was designed by Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava, we were totally wowed and gave it a five-bullet rating on Tripadvisor (14 June 2016). Our last experience, on 16 September 2023, was much less positive. The all-white building was dressed in colourful stripes by French artist Daniel Buren and looked like a Disneyland attraction. We don’t care about Buren’s work. A few years ago, it spoiled our visit to the amazing Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. When the station was built, questions were raised about the maintenance of the huge glass roof. In the meantime, so it seems, dirt has been left to pile up. What was even worse was a poster announcing “La gare se transforme en Night Club”. So we had to wait for half an hour in a station that had been converted into a nightclub. Even at the far end of the tracks, the sound was deafening and we were happy when our train arrived.

Railways, designers and architects have been striving hard to add misery to the life of the European travellers. In this station they have surpassed themselves. This latest monstrosity, joining Berlin, in maximising the discomfort of travellers achieves it magnificently. Most travellers only see an impressive canopy as their train passes through with never a thought for the poor people on the platform. Freezing in winter, wind swept, rain soaked or sunny fried the rest of the year, the only shelter is below the platforms on a cold stone bench or in a cramped cafe. Just to add to the discomforts beware of bag snatchers.

We were passing through Liege from Cologne to Brussels. I decided to stretch my legs and sit near the suitcases on Thalys. Just as the doors opened at Liege Giillemins these two men got onto the train and started lifting up my mother and sisters suitcase. I got up and said that's not yours. Then he said "non, non.." and tried to take another one which belonged to my father. I quickly grabbed that too. They fled. There seems to be a racket at Liege for this sort of activity, be careful!!!!

This train station is probably one of the nicest looking buildings in Liege. It is really a treat when you arrive here. It is open so it can get quite cold inside it. But it is worth a quick visit.
