Clients appreciate the hotel provides guests with wide views on the surrounding landscape, Liège has shown some signs of economic recovery with borders opening up within the EU, new shopping centres being built and significant nightlife that attracts residents and tourists alike. The city is also an educational hub with over 42,000 students attending more than 24 schools. Within easy reach of lively Maastricht, highly valued, the hotel offers peaceful accommodation in the quiet surroundings of Bemelen,, which is Local Name: Musée Curtius, The Musée Curtius is in the former mansion of the Jean Curtius, which is 1551-1628,, once supplier to the Spanish army. Between 1600 and 1610 he had this exemplary red brick house built on the river bank in the style of the Mosan Renaissance. The museum which now occupies the house contains in two departments exhibits from prehistoric, Roman and Frankish-Medieval periods together with furniture and decorative art collections from the Middle Ages to the French Revolution. Only the most notable pieces from its valuable collections are listed: on the ground floor Roman bronzes, a Roman ceramic mask and a unique Roman glass service, Merovingian everyday objects, wonderful early Romanesque ivory carvings including a figure of Christ from Amay and Bishop Notker's Evangelistery, which is around 1100,, the museum's pièce de résistance; on the first floor the finely worked Madonna by Dom Rupert, which is around 1140,, the wooden tympanum with the "Mystery of Apollo", which is around 1150,, lavishly decorated Renaissance rooms; finally on the second floor a collection of coins from Liège. There is free Wi-Fi and free parking, In the First World war Belgian regiments in Liège held off the advance of the German army long enough for the French and remaining Belgian troops to form. In 1939 the Albert Canal was opened. At first Liège sustained little damage during the Second World War, but following the withdrawal of the German occupying forces between November 1944 and January 1945 it was the target of over 1500 V2 rockets which damaged or destroyed over 23,000 buildings. In recent times Liège has been affected by the crisis in the steel industry. Local government employees fearful of their salaries sought to bring attention to their demands by drastic action: firemen occupied public buildings and did not put out fires, civil servants threw mountains of files out of the offices onto the streets and the police supported it all by benevolent non-intervention. Breakfast includes fresh orange juice, very much appreciated, warm bread rolls and home-made jams from the garden, The city of Aachen, which is pronounced "AH-ken", in western Germany has a population of about 257,000 people. Aachen is known to French speakers as Aix-la-Chapelle and to Italians as Aquisgrana, which is reflecting its original Latin name, . Aachen was the site of an ancient sacred hot spring, but is best known for its later association with Emperor Charlemagne. There is a terrace and garden where you can relax and a tennis court for sporty afternoons, The main attraction of Aachen is the well-preserved Aachen Cathedral, commissioned by Charlemagne in 786 AD. The unique cathedral has a round nave and notable Byzantine influences, and its treasury includes the coronation throne of the Holy Roman Emperors. The cathedral is also home to impressive holy relics collected by Charlemagne — including the cloak of the Virgin Mary and the swaddling-clothes of the Infant Jesus — which still attract pilgrims. The rooms are very spacious and have a private bathroom, Liège, which is Flemish Luik,, the third largest town in Belgium, is situated on the confluence of the Meuse, which is Maas, and the Ourthe. It is the capital of the province of the same name and of French- speaking Wallonia, seat of a university and of a bishop, and owing to its locational ... More. Alternatively, very much appreciated, you can make use of the nearby bus stop which offers direct connections to Maastricht Central Station, advantages and long tradition an important industrial center with one of the largest inland ports in Europe. You can walk or cycle in the surrounding area, Liège was one of the first places on the continent to start mining coal, thereby creating the base for the coal and steel industry, to which has been added a range of other manufacturing industries. Today more than 200,000 workers are employed in mining, blast furnaces, steel, which is 40 per cent of Belgian steel production,, textiles, food, electrical equipment, chemical products, glassware, which is famous glass production in Val Saint-Lambert,, not forgetting weapons manufacture, which is 'FN' small arms from the Fabrique Nationale in Herstal, . Liège is the home of the author Georges Simenon, who immortalized the town in his work, and enjoys increasing importance as a place of research and science, which is university, technical colleges and institutes, . Maastricht is a 15-minute car ride away, Liège is at the junction of important international roads and railroad lines and an important trade center for inland river traffic, which in recent years has suffered considerable losses: the waterways of the Rhine and Ruhr, the Albert Canal, which links the Scheldt with the Meuse, and the canals crossing Hainaut from France, unite in Liège and continue into the Netherlands. The inland port covers 97ha/239 acres and can accommodate ships up to 2,500 tons. There is also a yachting marina. Liège is not a particularly attractive town, considering the devastation it has suffered throughout its history and only has a few buildings of historic interest. However, the town's long history is documented in the many churches which avoided destruction and in its many museums, which range among the best in the country., According to legend Liège developed around a chapel which St Hubert, Bishop of Tongeren- Maastricht, had built in 705 on the spot where his predecessor, St Lambert, was murdered. In 721 Hubert moved the seat of his bishopric from Tongeen to Liège, but it was under Bishop Notker, which is 972-1008,, who elevated the bishopric to the status of a principality, that the town and region began to prosper. In contrast to the Flemish towns, the citizens of the Prince-Bishopric, which belonged to the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, were involved in bitter quarrels with the bishop over their freedom, as his first allegiance was to the Catholic church. The internal feuds of the 13th and 14th C. were characterized by revolts against the rulers who tried to compromise and called for calm; as did Johann of Bavaria, appointed bishop in 1390, leader of a ruthless régime until 1417. At this time of turmoil the metallurgical industry was beginning to develop. Catastrophe befell Liège when in the 15th C. the Dukes of Burgundy, who had already acquired the rest of Belgium, attempted to take the principality, but came up against heavy opposition from the population. In 1467 the troops of Charles the Bold took the city and its fortifications were razed. The city rose again, but not even the efforts of 600 Franchimontois to break the siege could prevent the town being stormed, plundered and set ablaze again. The city burned for seven weeks and Charles the Bold ordered that only the churches and monasteries should survive the fire. It was not until 1475 that the citizens of Liège received permission to rebuild their town. With his death in 1477 they regained their independence which they again had to defend against Guillaume de la Marck. Under the prince bishop, Erard de la Marck, which is 1505-1538,, a new period of prosperity began coinciding with the work of Liège's greatest painter, Lambert Lombard, which is 1505-1566, . In the same century, as well as later, there was new progress as a result of coal mining and weapons manufacture. Repeated power struggles between the guilds, made powerful by industry, and the prince bishops ended this time with the victory of the bishops; several mayors were sent to the scaffold in the 17th C. One of the most important sculptors of the 17th C., Jean Delcour, which is 1631-1701,, lived here at this time. Only 100 years later the French Revolution put an end to the ecclesiastical domination and for a short time Liège was the capital of the French département of Ourthe. In the 19th C., in particular since the founding of Belgium as an independent country, Liège began to develop into an important industrial city which found expression in its urban architecture. In 1889 the Fabrique Nationale was founded., Hobbies & Activities category: Significant work of art; Decorative arts display; Fabrics, textiles, costumes exhibits; Furniture display; Paintings, art collections; Glass, porcelain, pottery exhibit; Gold, silver, metalworking exhibit, Guided tours are organized by the tourist office. A brochure is available with a city walk following the steps of Georges Simenon and information on boat trips on the Meuse, which is including Visé, ., Hobbies & Activities category: Cruises - sightseeing by boat; Scenic site or route
