Some parts of Liege definitely deserve a visit: The cathedral , the "Mountagne de bueren" or the citadel, but surely other cities in Belgium impressed me much more. If you take an "on the road" trip and have to choose, maybe consider other cities like Ghent, Dinat or Bruges.

It's a steep climb up, but you get rewarded with great views over the city and the river...the citadel itself seems neglected though, nothing to visit there...just go for the workout and the view

My daughters are living in the vicinity of " les coteaux de la citadelle " Pesonnaly I visited it several times. From the height of " les coteaux de la citadelle" you have a marvellous view of the city of Liège. You can also visit and / or go up on the 378 steps of a famoes battle named " les 600 Franchimontois " with at the end all died.Have a nice trip.

The steep slope of the Citadel starts right behind the city centre and offers a stark contrast and a nice physical challenge to the visitor. Lots of green and cobble stones give it a rather rural feel, and the views are great. You get a sense of why the site was chosen to build a city, and become aware of its history and what life would have been like in this part of the world. In the meantime you can burn a few calories - always a good idea in the homestead of beer and chocolate -, and if you’re the type who always takes the lift, make some good resolutions regarding your health.

Each year , in the beautiful city of Liege , there is this folkloric event, a circuit that take you into the coteaux, de Liege.it start "rue St leonard and take you thru Pierreuse to the citadelle, all the street are illuminated by thousands of candles, musical attraction are placed here and there where all kind of music are played, also there several shop and restaurant where you can a taste of different cuisine, several small 'bar' on the street offers you the typical alcohol liegeois that is called 'Pecket' these have a wide variety of flavor, museum are open and freed, also the St Barthelemy church is all illuminated, as expected this feast attract people from Holland, Germany and even France, the best point to see is the illumination of the Montagne of Bueren, with the 300 steps all decorated by candles set in a splendid mosaic like display

This hilly area of the Citadel of Liege is hard work to get to, but you'll be rewarded with excellent views of the city below. The views from the top of Montagne de Bueren
are excellent, but if you go further along to Belvédère Liège, the views are even clearer and better.

There isn't much to see of the citadel and it's mostly ruins. You can still walk around and see a lot of what remains as much of it is still standing. The area has paved walking paths and is a pleasant area for a stroll.

We were so lucky to have our guide takes to this hidden gem behind mysterious stairways and ancient houses and other buildings. It is poorly signposted; our guide helped direct several lost hikers. It is up many, many steps with lots of twists and turns so be prepared. All along the way I kept thinking it reminded me so much of the Filbert Steps area of Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. Once you reach the top one is rewarded with a pleasant view of Liege from a tall, tall hill. So nice!

Not much more left from the original than the walls. Maybe it is not a bad place for a hospital but it doesn't impress as the tourist attraction. It is a top of the hill but viewing rather obstructed.
