The Beautiful Railway Cathedral in Liège-Guillemins

The Liège-Guillemins station is the most photographed monument in Liège. This architectural gem was designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and inaugurated in September 2009 after 10 years of work. During the construction the railway station was kept operational.

Its white color and its shapes clearly refer to the style of Santiago Calatrava. Because of its large windows the station is naturally lit and transparent and called a modern day cathedral. The glass and steel arched roof extends over the five platforms with a width of 150 m. Its two canopies reaches a height of 40 metres.
