Probably one of the most (if not the most) notable landmark in Liège, the Gare de Guillemins (Liège-Guillemins train station) is a destination on its own. When I first arrived in Liege, I was greeted by this peculiar train station. It was indeed very different from the typical Victorian to art-deco style European train stations. This very modern and seemingly futuristic structure was designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, and was formally opened for use on Sept of 2009. One can’t deny that the peculiarity of this station is indeed reminiscent to Calatrava’s signature designs (just like those in his home town Valencia). Because of its uniqueness, the gare de Guillemins has been listed by many (including CNN, I just couldn’t find the link anymore ugh!) on their most beautiful and must-visit train stations in Europe and the world lists. When in Liège, before heading off to your destination, why not spend a few minutes to stroll and wander around the Gare.
