Musical trip

Liège makes your taste buds salivate with its famous waffles or cafes, but the city also makes art lovers shiver for its cultural richness to be tasted during a weekend. The Cité ardente offers a great eclecticism between its historic squares, its museums and the modernity of its new buildings such as the Guillemins station. For music lovers, the former capital of Wallonia is a must, with the Orchester Philharmonique Royal de Liège and the Opéra Royal de Wallonie which is celebrating its 200th anniversary this season.

New Years Eve in Liège will be cheerful thanks to the petulant and inimitable Michel Fau who stages La Belle Hélène by Offenbach. In the role of Ménélas, he shared the poster with Julie Robard-Gendre and Reinoud Van Mechelen, exceptional talents ...

Another pleasure of the stay, a private guide takes you to discover the historic heart of Liège. Several itineraries will be suggested to you, such as a visit to a museum combined with the discovery of part of the City and, above all, the possibility of visiting the Royal Opera of Wallonia without forgetting a tempting gastronomic visit!
