Liège is also the city of GEORGE SIMENON (1903 - 1989), the creator of police detective MAIGRET. Simenon was a very prolific writer. His enormous literary production has been translated everywhere in the world. He wrote hundreds of novels and stories, both under his own name or under a pseudonym. In 1931 he started the series of Maigret stories. Of humble beginnings, he has become one of the most popular novelists of the 20th century.
Nowadays Liège is a rapidly changing city where old meets new. Take a walk through the old city center and discover the typical traffic-free alleys and shopping streets where terraces abound. Visit the central St. Lambert square where a new modern Liège is growing. Take a walk alongside the banks of the majestically flowing Meuse river and see Liège from a distance.
If you like local specialties you cannot leave the city without having tasted a sweet 'Gaufre de Liège' (Waffle of Liège). You will find this delicacy at every bakery and even at stands in the street.
