This week is packed with arrivals of our frequent (and new!) tenants that came exclusively for the Christmas market!! They are all excited for the opening which takes place TODAY!!! We can barely await to stroll around their huts while drinking a glass of mulled wine to get warm and to eat all the delicious Christmas specialties.

The Christmas market in Liège, existing for 31 years already, is the most important one in Belgium due to its size and the atmosphere that is surrounding it. Every year, there are around 200 huts that attract almost 2 million visitors among which you can find more and more visitors from all over the world!

The festivities begin TODAY. Don’t miss it because on top of all, Liège was elected the European Christmas City!!!


No, Autumn is not sad in Belgium! :)

 

 

Here it is, automn ! 


Leaves are going to fall off and the weather to become cooler. But no way to feel depressed! Ze Team shares with you their favorite activities which will made your Belgian autumn nice !
If you don’t already know what you’ll do in Liège in October, don’t worry ! All people from Liège will certainly recommend you to go to the “Foire de Liège“. From  September 30th till November 12th, you can discover more than 170 attractions. Another “must see” in Liège ? If I you are in Liège on the 
7th of October, you shouldn’t miss the “Nuit des Coteaux” ! The whole historic center is enlightened with candles, and you’ll find lots of bars and music.


And what about Brussels? Children there are going to be the VIP of october ! They
will have fun with a pile of Lego (and you, too) during the Bricklive. And if you want to go back in time, Brussels proves you that it is possible, thanks to the playful and alive exhibition Dino World, you’ll know all the history of dinosaurs!

Family getaway at the Jonruelle apartment

jonruelle

You would like to spend good moments with your family in a city that brims with activities? Drop off your bags at the Jonruelle apartment! Easily accessible, this 87 m² apartment is located in the Saint-Léonard district in Liège, two steps away from the town center and the city’s historical district. During the day you will enjoy the city center, its shops, museums and restaurants (we recommend la BambolaComo en Casa and XVIIIème) or simply an afternoon of movies, DIY and cooking with your family (why not the three of them?) in the large living room and the equipped kitchen. In the evening, you can relax, take a bath and drink a cup of tea in front of the bay window and the beautiful view it offers on the Citadel’s hillsides.


WITH FAMILY(or friends) : LA NUIT DES COTEAUX

Liège boasts some of the 20th most spectacular stairs in the world!

coteaux
Every first saturday in October, the stairs beautiful demonstrate night time in ‘Coteaux’- and that’s why people flock to take photos of them, to climb them, to descend them and to bask in all their glory!

The whole historical centre of Liège is illuminated in candles; which you can walk between to descover the city in a new and exciting light. What’s more, it makes the summit up the ‘Escalier de Bueren’s 374 stairs’ pleasant and even easy!

To kill two birds with one stone, why don’t you make a stop at the equally enchanting Brasserie Curtius, situated in an old convent at the bottom of the stairs.


WITH THE FAMILY (or friends) : URBAN TRAIL

On the heels of the “Brussels 20km”, the 10km Brussels Urban Trail is due to take place on July 5!

A little more manageable, more accessible, and certainly less daunting… Anyone who feels reluctant or out of practice can even follow an individual training programme, available to all participants. And even stragglers can simply enjoy the historical and cultural sights of Brussels from the vantage point of the chosen route.
An ideal opportunity to take up jogging if you have never done it before!


WITH THE FAMILY : GEMOTIONS – MOBILE ADVENTURES

gemotions

The ideal concept for the ultra-connected, explorers, budding detectives, art lovers, lovers of architecture and other city treasures, and lovers in general!

It’s a kind of treasure hunt to help you discover or rediscover the capital, the area around the Château de la Hulpe and other parts of Belgium and Europe by means of little jokes (yes, we admit, some of these did make us laugh) and challenges sent to your mobile phone via SMS.

All of the available walking routes are here.


WITH THE FAMILY : BRUSSELS MUSHROOMS!

Champignons

Go mushroom-picking in the nooks and crannies of Tour & Taxi!

A young team from Brussels, just getting started, checked out the sites, and now offers guided tours with explanations, picking and tasting, in several languages, on weekday evenings or at weekends.

You can also get an oyster mushroom kit containing coffee grounds and straw, which will grow and should be kept in the refrigerator (There you go – Another Christmas gift idea!).
