It's not usual to refer to a train station as breathtaking, but in the case of the Liège-Guillemins Railway Station that is precisely the word to use. The stunning remodeling of the station will take it into the 21st century in fine style and at the same time join two once distinct parts of Liege. In a unique twist of architectural finesse the town is the station and the station is the town. The Liège-Guillemins Railway Station has no facades, no walls, no obstacles but does have a transparent structure which will be a remarkable first of its kind. The station is under the development of architect Santiago Calatrava, and features concrete, steel, glass and natural stone. The station itself is a landmark to see and appreciate.
The Liège-Guillemins Railway Station is one of the most important hubs in Belgium, directly connected to the high-speed network and serving 36,000 people a day. The first train station was inaugurated May 1842, linking the valley to the upper Ans station. In 1843, the first international railway connection was born, linking Liège to Aachen and Cologne. They've come a long way since then. The new station will feature 9 tracks and 5 platforms (three of 450 m and two of 350 m). All the tracks around the station have been modernized to allow high-speed arrival and departure.
