Traffic in Liege is temporarily affected by the streetcar/tramway works. Therefore, we advise you to refer to the websites of the transport providers, and more particularly, of the TEC, to obtain/get the most reliable information possible.
The collegiate church of Saint Bartholomew is located in the historical heart of the Cité Ardente and is therefore easily integrated in the itineraries of our visitors, especially those who visit the collegiate churches (link ). At 800 meters from the Place Saint-Lambert, 700 meters from the Perron, 500 meters from the Bueren stairs, the church is located at Place Saint-Barthélemy, number 8, between Hors-Château and Feronstrée. The entrance and the reception are located slightly to the right, on the Feronstrée side when you face the two towers of the building.
There is an accessible and protected bicycle parking space inside (reception).
The Saint-Lambert train station (formerly the Palace train station), with its frequent shuttle buses to the Guillemins train station, is located behind the Palace of the Prince-Bishops. If you take the rue du palais, and then the rue Hors-Château, it will only take you about ten minutes to walk to Saint-Barthélemy.
In these somewhat disrupted periods, we advise you to check the stops and schedules on the TEC website (link). During the Tram/tramway works, there is a stop at Place des Déportés (lines 1, 134, 5, 7, 24), 300 meters from the church and another one at rue Maghin (line 4), at the same distance.
You will find two paying parking lots near the church (Parking Cité and Parking Saint-Georges) currently accessible by the quai de la Batte. Rates and access are to be checked on the websites of the parking lots concerned (link). If you prefer to leave your car on the outskirts of Liège, a free parking lot (as well as a free shuttle bus) is at your disposal in Vottem, at the end of the E313 freeway.
But yes/Absolutely, in the right season/sunny season, you can reach the Collegiate Church by river shuttle and thus connect the contemporary of the Museum of Boverie to the medieval or baroque splendors of the Collegiate Church. The nearest stop is on the other bank of the Meuse, near the Saint Leonard Bridge. Schedules and details to be found on the attached link (link)
All the facilities are offered inside the church to allow (ramps) a serene and pleasant visit to the people experiencing difficulties to move or suffering from a handicap.
