Reaching the Conference by plane
Several airports are located near Liège. Connections, flight frequency and fares will vary according to your departure city.
- Liège Airport (the closest airport, but limited number of destinations)
- Maastricht Airport (located in the Netherlands, but not so far from Liège)
- Brussels Airport (largest and best connected airport of Belgium)
- Charleroi/Brussels South Airport (many low-cost options)
- Dusseldorf and Koln are also possible
Once arrived at one of these airports, the easiest solution is to go to the Liège-Guillemins station, than to follow the instructions detailed below.
Reaching the Conference using public transportation (train/bus)
The easiest way to reach Liège by train is to arrive at the Liège-Guillemins station, that is well connected to many Belgian, Dutch, German, French and British cities. The Belgian rail company (SNCB/NMBS) provides both national and international travel information (timetables, route planner, fees, ticket booking, etc.).
By public transport the last leg of your journey will probably use the bus. The website of the TEC (transports en commun) shows time tables and routes, which you will probably not even need: bus lines f 2, and 3 will take you to “Place Cockerill” which is just behind the main university building, or lines 1, 4, 25, 48 will get you to “Pont d’Avroy” which is 5 minutes walk to the Univeristy (cross Cathedral square and take Rue Charles Magnette). Ticket fare is around 2 € and can be paid on the bus.
NB: at the Guillemins train station main exit, take buses on the opposite side of the street, going to your left if you have your back to the station!
NB2: there will be a partial bus strike in TEC on Wednesday. Please check www.infotec.be for details and plan ahead.
Reaching the Conference using by car
A well-developed networks of motorways (E40, E25, E42, E313) makes access to Liège by car fairly easy.
The nearest public parking lots (paying) include “Charles Magnette” and “Illico Grand Poste”.
