Another one of these cities with many names: Liège (French), Lîdje (Walloon), Luik (Dutch), Lüttich (Germany). I have to admit, I didn't know much about it: capital of Wallonia, the backbone of the industrial centre of Belgium (or what is left from it), one of these cities that are deemed left far behind, only a shadow of what is was in past times. Then again is this incredible railway station, all these strange views you get from the city when driving through by train: it was about time to leave the comfort zone and to discover Liège.

I'd love to visit this station Manfred, looks the sort of place where you could spend a full day with a camera. This is a very inventive composition, and excellent way to frame the town in the background.

@António Pires: The station isn't really connected to the city, but that view is indeed spectacular. More about the station in future postings.

Super modern design, but how cold will it be in the Winter..!

@Michael Fresh: Perhaps pretty cold! There are not many places for getting shelter.
