Sorry to ask the question in such a rude way. When learning of our tentative plans to stay in Liege on our Belgian trip this September, a couple of people have described it as "a post-industrial dump." I am seeking additional opinions on the matter.
Looking at the guidebooks and brochures, the armaments museum is interesting, as is the city's role in the early days of World War I. the "post-industrial" part has certain attractions, such as visiting coal mines and old factories. It's a change from cathedrals and castles, innit?
What is the town like? Does it have parks? Is it interesting to walk around in?
