Things to do in Liege as Recommended by our Hostel Guests
Since 2006, travellers who booked our hostel in Liège had the opportunity to leave ratings, comments and tips for other visitors. In 2008, bookings that were made online represented 26% of our overnight stays. In 2011, this proportion had grown to 38%! That means more and more people are given the opportunity to share their travel experience and share their opinion, even if they’re not bloggers or Internet addicts. We have welcomed people from all around the world, from a wide range of ages and cultures.
Here are the tips that were the most recommended by our guests for things to do in Liège:
- Le Carré: District where the nightlife is terrific and almost never-ending.
- Le Peket: Specialty includes juniper alcohol – lots of tastes for lots of fun.
- La Batte: Sunday market along the river Meuse, about 3km long. Very colourful!
- Festivities of 15th August: Folkloric celebrations with thousands of people gathering each year. Dozens of concerts are played in the district of Outremeuse where the hostel is located. Party time is guaranteed from 12th to 15th August!
