The main station in Liège, Liège-Guillemins Railway Station, is Belgium's third-largest train station and one
of the most important transit hubs in the country. Every day, more than 15,000 people pass through the
station, making it the third busiest station in the region of Wallonia.
Liège-Guillemins Railway Station's new building was officially opened in 2009, with nine modernised
tracks, including two dedicated high-speed tracks and five platforms. Previously, the site housed a Beaux-
Arts style station that was originally built in 1842. Eventually, the old station had to be replaced as it could
no longer handle the increased ridership and integration of high-speed rail lines.
The Thalys and ICE trains provide high-speed international services to the Liège-Guillemins Railway
Station, connecting passengers from Liège with destinations like Brussels, Paris, Cologne, Essen, and
Frankfurt. In addition to the high-speed services, the station is also served by nine intercity services, two
local services, various peak trains throughout the workweek, and seven Liège RER suburban services.
Liège - Saint - Lambert Railway Station
Formerly known as Liège-Palais Station, after the nearby landmark, the Palace of the Prince-Bishops, the
station is now named Liège-Saint-Lambert Railway Station for the nearby landmark, Saint-Lambertus
Square. The station, located 2.2 kilometres (just over a mile) from Liège's city centre on Line 34, consists of
four platforms and two tracks.
The Liège-Saint-Lambert Railway Station is accessible at street level; however, the station itself is
underground. As of 2021, the station is undergoing renovations to increase accessibility for people of all
abilities, but services are not expected to be interrupted during the process.
Currently, Liège-Saint-Lambert Railway Station offers four intercity services, three Liège RER suburban
services, one Omnibus service, and multiple Peak Rush Hour services.
