Holidays in Montagne de Beuren

Holiday Travel Guide
Montagne de Beuren which includes heritage architecture

Climb this famous staircase to reach one of the highest points in Liège and enjoy panoramic views of the city.

Montagne de Bueren (Bueren Mountain) is a 374-step staircase that connects the city center to an old citadel. With a slope of almost 30 degrees, these stairs are not a real mountain, but you might find that this long, steep climb is almost as challenging as ascending to a summit.

The staircase was constructed in the late 19th century to allow soldiers to access the city center from the citadel. It was named for Vincent de Bueren, who defended Liège against an attack by the Duke of Burgundy in the 15th century. It honors the 600 soldiers who lost their lives in this battle.

Be sure to take your time as you ascend the staircase. Not only will this ease the physical exertion of the climb, but it will also provide an opportunity for you to admire the charming, centuries-old buildings found along both sides of the staircase.

At the top of the stairs, you’ll be able to see the Meuse River and the city of Liège below. Compare the view with the simplified map of Liège, which is depicted on the floor of the viewing platform.

Look for the towering war memorial dedicated to the soldiers who died during World War I and World War II. Walk to the remains of the citadel, which is found just behind this war memorial. Originally built between the 10th and 11th centuries by the Romans, the citadel has been reconstructed many times over the years. Today, its ruined brick bastions surround a modern hospital.

One of the best times of year to visit Montagne de Bueren is on the first Saturday in October during the Nocturne des Coteaux de la Citadelle. For this event, more than 3,000 candles are placed along the steps to create a mesmerizing evening illumination. Or visit the staircase during Bueren de Fleurs in June, when the steps are covered with colorful flowers.

Montagne de Bueren can be accessed from Rue Hors Chateau. The staircase and citadel are free to explore any time of day.
