  • Montagne de Bueren is a 374-step staircase in Liège, Belgium. The staircase is named after Vincent de Bueren, who defended Liège against an attack by the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold in the 15th century. It was built in 1881 to honor the 600 soldiers who died in the battle. Climbing to the top in one go takes a toll on your whole body! If you can make it, means your heart is in good condition :)
  • Great flight of stairs with some really interesting buildings on the way. Brilliant views over Liège if you carry on to the monument when you get to the top of the steps.
