The metro station Liège is a bit different from other Paris metro stations. It was opened in 1913, 13 years after the first metro. It’s on a line which goes basically in the sense north south. It was first baptised Berlin, closed for a couple of months in 1914 when the First World War broke out and then opened again a few months later with a new name, Liège (Luick, Lidje, Lüttich), the Belgian Walloon province and city. It’s situated in an area where all the streets have the names of different European major cities, including rue de Liège.
The station, which is very close to the St. Lazare station, is fairly small and narrow; the quays are not opposite to each other as in all other stations. It was closed again in 1939 and opened only in 1968, then with a new decoration, which also is unique for a Paris metro station. The walls are covered with motives from the Liège region, made of tiles from Welkenraedt in the Liège province. I made my "discovery" thanks to my new “blogger eyes”.
