Montagne de Bueren.

With its 374 steps and an incline that reaches 30%, the mountain of Bueren is reputed to be one of the world’s ten most extraordinary staircases. Permanently open to the public, this site is among the unmissable locations in the city of Liège. A work of art that’s characteristic of 19th-century breakthroughs, the mountain of Bueren enabled a direct link between the barracks at the citadel and the city centre. The name of this flight of stairs recalls the aborted coup by the 600 Franchimontois. Led by Vincent de Bueren and Gossuin de Streel, they attempted to capture Charles the Bold and Louis XI during the night of 29 October 1468. And contrary to what many Liège residents believe, the 600 Franchimontois never passed by this place...
