Liège, the third largest city in Belgium in terms of population after Brussels and Antwerp, is located on the Meuse river near Belgium's eastern borders with the Netherlands and Germany. Liège has an interesting history, it is the birthplace of Emperor Charlemagne. Also the writer Georges Simenon was born there. Today Liège is  the cultural center of Wallonia with an intense artistic life as well as an important architectural heritage.
