The Province of Liège is a province on the move where good humour is a way of life. Its natural heritage, verdant landscapes and folklore —the pride of many locals— never fail to strike a chord. Head to places such as the Museum of the Walloon Life and La Boverie to discover the charms of this cultural province. A new Creative Hub, a fantastic project built around writing and digital tools, will soon see the light of day on the site of Bavière in downtown Liège. The Province of Liège is also a focal point for sports. Its know-how in organising large-scale events is recognised around the world. As a cycling hub, it regularly attracts fans for Liège–Bastogne–Liège and La Flèche Wallonne, but also for the Tour de France, which again paid a visit last year. The Province also puts the focus on other sports, whether by organising big international events such as the recent Davis Cup or by running high-level facilities, such as the Pôle Ballons volleyball and basketball centre in Waremme.
Quality of life is the common thread that weaves through the rich tapestry of the neighbourhoods of Ans. Popular, residential and commercial areas, industrial estates, rural landscapes for those who gravitate towards the great outdoors… Ans has something for everyone. The Municipal College has developed a forward-looking and environmentally friendly urban project, with a lighting plan for several municipal buildings. Public parks are developed to promote relations among cultures and generations. Ans boasts top-notch sports facilities as well, with 80 different clubs in 25 sports and more than 5,000 members out of a population of 30,000. Hosting the finish of Liège-Bastogne-Liège “Hommes” and Liège-Bastogne-Liège “Femmes” and several world-renowned cycling races just goes to show the importance of sport for life in Ans. However, the town is also a leading cultural hotspot of the Province of Liège thanks to its Cultural Centre and the multiple exhibitions on display in Waroux Castle.
