Culture

Through its many emblematic projects, including the TGV station at Liège-Guillemins, the City of Liège enjoys international renown. It is one of Europe's few cities to house, within its modest perimeter, several cultural institutions of standing including the Royal Opera of Wallonia – equipped with a thrust stage and some of the world's most high-performing stage machinery; The Liège Royal Philharmonic Orchestra – the only symphonic orchestra in Francophone Belgium – equipped with a fantastic philharmonic auditorium; Théâtre de Liège, fully renovated and housed in the prestigious  building of the Emulation, a theatre that is resolutely modern!

On the associations and local culture side, the Cité Miroir, a place of education, debate and culture at the service of citizenship, offers its activities within the walls of the former la Sauvenière baths, a symbolic Liège building.

The city of Liège also means an abundant and varied range of museums: the Museum of Walloon Life is the most complete museum of ethnology in Wallonia, while the Grand Curtius, a museum ensemble of international standing, comprises some 5,000 m² and approaches 7000 years of art and history in Liège Country!

Liège welcomes all kinds of audiences: the Cadran, a cultural and musical space, has just celebrated its 2nd anniversary, while the new Reflektor concert venue opened its doors on 4 March.

Exhibition spaces, activity areas, cinemas, organised events, shows for all tastes, for all ages... the Province of Liège, in tune with its times, wants to be closer to audiences, stepping beyond the frontiers...
