CULTURE : LIÈGE À PIED (LIÈGE ON FOOT)

Even people from Liège who think they know their city are fighting over this book — it’s out of stock all the time!

You will be guided step by step, as if the book were your travelling companion. Through anecdotes and shortcuts to unmarked paths, the book guides you from the town centre to the many bucolic, historical or present day discoveries that surround and enrich it. There are 7 routes that are sometimes a bit long for unseasoned walkers (pay attention to the walking time given), with the authors’ favourite destinations and interviews with a few people in each neighbourhood: we haven’t yet gone on all the walks but we devoured this guide.

You can also get it from Toutes Directions (which we love because it’s a travel-themed bookshop and because it’s next-door to the Beer Lover Shop… yes, we’ve decided to talk about beer throughout this Newsletter)!


WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS :BEER HIKES

This is how to rally the troops!

We’ve found and tested the perfect guide for groups of friends torn between going for a walk or going for a drink. It’s an opportunity see some sights in a different way, walking through the magnificent rolling hills of Belgium to reach an abbey that brews a beer that you would be wise to taste.

We recommend that you buy this book from a bookshop that we love and you’ll soon understand why: Toutes Directions.


ADDRESS : LA BERGERIE DE LA LIENNE

La Bergerie de la Lienne: an ideal break before or after a walk through the wonderful spots in Lierneux!

Jon and Nadia welcome you as a family to their sheepfold were you can say hello/feed/take care of/play with forty ewes, a few chickens and 3 horses. If you’re more interested in some drinks or a snack, you can taste some local produce on the terrace. We recommend you taste the beer from the Lienne brewery there, and take a pot of feta made by Jon and Nadia home with you as well as a pot of honey made by Nadia’s mum’s bees.
