Our dojo is located in the botanic garden area of Liege, a beautiful, calm and easily accessible area of Liege.
Liège (Luik, Lüttich) is centrally located in Europe (30 min. from Aachen or Maastricht, 1h00 from Cologne and 2h10 from Paris by high speed train. There are several direct trains from Paris to Liege and back so you don’t even need to change in Brussels).
We are also a 12″ minutes walk from the Liège-Guillemins, the main train station in Liège. Liege is well deserved by public transport, motorways and airports. Liège is located 1h15 from Brussels Airport or Brussels Chalerloi.
How to get to our dojo / training center ?
We are easy to reach since we are close to the exits of the major motorways. Be sure to allocate though some time for parking as this might be difficult to find a spot in the area on week-ends. The following is a list of streets where you may have a good chance to find a spot : Rue Courtois, Rue d’Omalius, Rue Charles Morren. As in any big city, avoid leaving belongings, even insignificant items, visible in your car.
We are at a very short distance from the high speed train station (Liège Guillemins). The train station is at a short distance; approximately 5 minutes by taxi or bus drive to our location. If you take the bus, take Bus 20 heading to “Centre Ville” / City Center, stop at “Sté Véronique”, then you walk on your left (that is following the bus leaving) for 2 minutes on Rue Louvrex, then you take the first road on your left Rue des Anges (a pharmacy is at the bottom end of our street).
You can also walk from the train station. It will take approximately 12 minutes. Turn left leaving the train station, walk on Rue Paradis for a few meters until the round about, then turn right on Rue des Guillemins. The first street you come to turn left on Rue Dartois. You will notice that the street names will change, just keep walking straight; the names will turn to rue Fabry, then Rue Louvrex, at the pharmacy, turn left on Rue des Anges, third house on that street).
