How to reach Liège (town centre)
Liège is a thousand-year-old city with a historical centre and numerous
monuments, churches and museums. Liège is located one hundred
kilometres east of Brussels.
- By air : Travellers arrive at Brussels National Airport. Shuttle
trains(Airport City Express) operate every 20 minutes between the airport and
several stations of Brussels. It is better to get off this train at the North
Station of Brussels. It takes approximately 15 minutes. We advise you not to
take a taxi from the airport to the North Station of Brussels because this is
very expensive (± 1000 BEF). If you want to take a taxi anyway, do not accept
proposals made inside the airport hall, but use those parked in the official
rank at the exit from the building. From the North Station of Brussels, direct
trains to Liège (Guillemins station) can be taken every hour, at least
from 6:00 to 24:00. The journey lasts approximately 1 hour. If you prefer
renting a car, the most important car rental companies have an office in the
Airport building at the exit of the luggage reclaim hall.

- By road : Liège is directly linked to the European motorway
network through several motorways: from Brussels (E40), from Paris (E42), from
Antwerp (E313), from Aachen (E40) or from Maastricht (E25).
