Must visit in the city!
Apr 2021
When you want to have a wonderful view you have to climb those steep stairs. You find them in the old city center in the most charming part of Luik.

Fun stairs! You have to be in good condition to climb the stairs. Nice view. The stairs are a little outside the city center.

Take the public bus from city-centre to the hospital on the citadel.From there it is a 2 minute walk to the War-monument ,underneath the steps are located.From the monument you have a great view over the city of Liège.Walk down the steps and enjoy on the corner of the rue le Poule a drink.Continue with a boatride on the river
Meuse.

Must see in Liege
Jul 2020
For sure a must see in Liege, it is strange to classify stairs as a touristic attraction but this is the best you are getting in Liege. It is worth it going upstairs, it is not that exhausting if you take some breaks to take pictures. There were many people doing fitness there as I was there so it was quite funny and interesting. Some tourists but not many. Liege is not a touristic city.

Funny long stairway
Dec 2019
It might look ordinary in photo but it's actually quite impressive when you visit there in person. We didn't have the stamina to walk all the way up to the hill tho...

Nice city view!
Dec 2019
Montagne de Bueren is a 374-step staircase in Liège, Belgium. The staircase is named after Vincent de Bueren, who defended Liège against an attack by the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold in the 15th century. It was built in 1881 to honor the 600 soldiers who died in the battle.

Must-see in Liège
Dec 2019
One of the must-sees for any visit to Liege, simply because of its uniqueness of 370+ steps in the middle of the city! Plus, you get a good workout while visiting it too (reasonable level of fitness is required, but nothing too strenuous or dangerous). At any rate, the stairs are fairly broad and not very steep, so you can always take a break in between.

At the top, you get a view of the city, which gets better if you climb up a bit further to a war monument which gives you a broader view of the city and river. Here, you'll also find the remains of a citadel with a hospital on top. Nothing too fancy so give yourself a maximum of 10 mins here.

A note about the nearby Coteaux de la Citadelle: it is basically a network of paths you can take that criss-crosses the hillsides among houses next to the stairs. I would recommend first ascending the Montagne de Bueren steps just for the thrill, then descend via one of these paths. I would particularly recommend the path called 'Terrasses des Minimes', which takes you across some gardens and ruins with some amazing uninterrupted views of the city along the way.
