Put on your swimming gear! A new public swimming pool has opened! And we couldn’t be happier!
Its brand-new facilities and varied bathing areas tick all the boxes: a large pool for the most athletic lengths, a cadet dedicated to learning and the pleasure of paddling, a nice lagoon for the little ones … as well as a relaxation and dining area.
Everything is there – and well thought out – to make you feel good! We particularly appreciate the large bay window which gives this place a beautiful luminosity. A great cure for all the greyness!
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 starts on Friday with the BueRun ! This running, as its names almost indicates, starts in the famous stairs of Montagne de Bueren, crosses the park of the Citadelle and finally passes through the historical center. This tour is to be done twice and ends at the top of the 374 steps. This is really hard !
You can rest on Saturday and take you bike on Sunday for the famous bike race Liège-Bastogne-Liège ! It begins in the center of Liège and go to the steepest coasts of the region. It ends up at the top of the Côte d’Ans which spices up the final sprint !
What about you ? What is your sport this weekend ?
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!
