Culture

A rich cultural offer

Liège is popular with culture lovers thanks to its rich offering, and is teeming with emerging artists and creators. Within a small area, there are many prestigious institutions housing internationally-renowned exhibitions and events, and buildings which are worth a look on their own merit. They represent the city's modernisation, a link between innovative materials and original constructions. Concert halls and many festivals welcome international artists all-year-round.

The cultural offer in Liège includes incredible exhibitions on comic books or Indonesia, a local festival or wandering through the city's typical streets where craftmanship and local creators are omnipresent.
