At first created for militaries during the 19th century, these 374 steps are a real everyday challenge, which would burn all your calories gained after eating Liege’s waffles. However, it’s completely worth it because when you get on top, you can enjoy its amazing view of Liege. Bonus, during holidays, the stairs are decorated with candles or flowers. With a bike or a not, this is the perfect place for extreme sports ‘ lovers.
It is in the very heart of the historic center of Liège and at the foot of the Montagne de Bueren that we can find our new apartment: Ursulines!
Its undeniable charm are the wooden beams visible in all the rooms.
Ursulines is located at the 3rd floor, which allows to the wide living room to be submerge in the light all along the day.
The apartment is also composed of a balcony, perfect to rest in front of a wonderful view of the hill.
If you are a person who love food as us, I advise you: Une Gaufrette Sarperlipopette, which is located next to Ursulines
