Lier is a charming little town at the junction of the Greater and Lesser Nete.
It is still unspoiled by mass tourism and a great day out when staying in the neighbouring city of Antwerp.

Explore the Market square with the beautiful old houses, walk along the river Nete in town or on the town wall, visit the peaceful beguinage and the beautiful Zimmer tower with its astronomical clock.

    Such a lovely town. Lier reminds me of Mechelen, the beguinage, the churches and the architecture.

    A stunning view in the opening picture. I remember it, but hazed in mist. The boat was there then too! I think we didn't spend long enough here (because of the weather) there is certainly more to see than we did see!!

    Lierse Vlaaikens are the best cakes I had in Belgium!! The Astronomical clock tower is the best working monument I've seen around the world!! Just loved the place & my guide Danielle (irisbe@VT) took a lot of effort to show me around this lovely place!!!
