This themed walk in Liège shows visitors sites linked to famous Belgian writer Georges Simenon’s life in the town.

The walk begins in the Outremeuse district, at the Notre-Dame school where our novelist learnt to read. It then guides visitors to other locations the author lived at when he was young, as well as others that inspired some of his stories. The stroll ends at La Violette, the local nickname for Liège town hall where Simenon was named, in May 1953, a leading figure of Wallonia!

A digital stroll

Follow the signs in Liège and use (from March 11th, 2023) the dedicated app to digital material such as pictures of the time, interviews of Simenon and augmented reality experiences.

Do make a detour, as part of the Le printemps Simenon festival, to see the Caque, renovated for the occasion: students and artists used to meet in this attic to discuss art and literature.

An excellent excuse to (re)discover Liège and see up close the many places that got Simenon’s imagination running.
