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 honour the 600 soldiers who died in the battle.
In 2013, Montagne de Bueren was ranked as #1 on The Huffington Post's list of Most Extreme Staircases.
In July 2020, in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Belgium, Belgian explorer and adventurer Louis-Philippe Loncke ascended and descended the staircase 135 times carrying a 15 kg backpack, simulating an ascent of Mount Everest. The 9000m climb, which took 65 hours 30 minutes, was meant to show that one could still "trouver des défis physiques près de chez soi" (find physical challenges close to home).

  • Great spectacle but you need to be reasonably fit to climb to the top. Great views when you do get there and worth the effort.

  • Interesed to clime snd see the city from above. We get pretty sweaty after we reached the top. I supouse the view is much nicer if the sun is shining.

  • The stairs are one of the locations you have to visit in Liege not only for the physical activity of climbing them but also for the amazing reward you will get after reaching the top. After climbing , an outstanding view of the whole city opens and you can spend 10 minutes or more just admiring the beautiful city. A quick tip is to begin your journey with these stairs because after them , you will feel a little tired :) .
  • Many, many, many steps lead to fantastic views. You will see a bench at the top where you can enjoy the panoramic view of the entire city. If you continue to the right you can get even a slightly more improved version. Totally worth. And honestly, much easier than I expected. We didn’t even need to stop for breaks. And yes, many, many, many tourists even after dark. And it’s totally free!
