Guillemins Railway Station

The district is known above all for the sumptuous train station of the same name, the work of Santiago Calatrava. A real monument not to be missed during a visit to Liège, the station has welcomed thousands of visitors every day since its inauguration in 2009. 
Inaugurated at the same time, Médiacité Shopping Liège is a perfect match for its equally impressive architectural strength.

Another equally imposing monument in the Guillemins district is the Tour des Finances (Finance Tower) or the Tour Paradis (Paradise Tower). This is the highest building in Wallonia. Thanks to its modern architecture, the building blends in perfectly with Guillemins station’s extension.
