Liège

The station opened on 26 February 1911.

It is situated on the border of the 8th and 9th arrondissements and is accessed from what is now known as rue de Liège.

It is served by the metro line 13.

When the underground station was opened it was given the name Berlin, however this was changed during the First World War when it reopened after several months of closure.

The station was again closed at the beginning of the second World War, reopening in 1968.

In 1982 the station was refurbished. A series of 18 paintings of the Liège area were painted on ceramic tiles and placed on the walls behind the tracks.

 

The border around the entrance is made of green metal bars of the same size fixed to a stone base.

At the entrance is a silver steel pole with a double circle on top. Inside is a yellow letter M.
