Lier: the city and the rivers

Lier is situate on only 20 km from Antwerp. It's on the confluence of the Grote Nete and the Kleine Nete rivers and give the combination between buildings and water very kind and special effects.


Lier est située à 20 km seulement de Anvers. Le confluent de la Grande Nete et de la Petite Nete dans le centre historique donne une impression particulière qui ravira nombre de visiteurs.


Many troof - Nombreux atouts

Besides the numerous historic monuments: The béguinage (world-wide heritage classified by the Unesco) and the tower Zimmer with his astronomical clock to quote only two, one will not forget the cultural aspects (principally Flemish) with Felix Timmerman and Louis Zimmer.

And then there is the surrounding nature: To only a throw of rock one discover the country growing green where the river presence gives a vision resting after city turbulence.


Outre les nombreux monuments historiques: Le béguinage (patrimoine mondial classé par l'Unesco) et la tour Zimmer avec son horloge astronomique pour n'en citer que deux, on n'oubliera pas les aspect culturels (principalement flamands) avec Felix Timmerman et Louis Zimmer .

Et puis il y a la nature environnante: A seulement un jet de pierre on se retrouve dans la campagne verdoyante ou la présence des rivières donne une vision reposante après la turbulence de la ville.


Culture and tradition
