LILLE

city of art and culture

In the heart of the capitals of Northern Europe (Paris-London-Brussels), Lille is a Flemish city of art and culture: with more than 15 museums including the Palais des Beaux-Arts, the second largest museum in France by richness of its collections, the Charles de Gaulle Birthplace, the museum of the Hospice Comtesse. In addition to Flemish architecture with colorful facades (of which the Old Stock Exchange is one of the most beautiful examples), Lille has a rich and diverse heritage; the mansions between the courtyard and the garden of the royal district rub shoulders with the eclecticism of the Grands Boulevards or the “Maisons Folies”, these old factories (textiles, breweries) which are beginning a second life. To discover this authentic and warm urban culture, take a seat in a tavern in the Wazemmes district, a veritable conservatory of popular traditions. As a walk, stroll through the stalls, dream in front of the flea markets and above all, immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the market on Sunday morning. Noises, colors and perfumes mingle with the sound of the accordion. Enjoy an intense cultural life, especially at the Opera, a varied gastronomy. In the heart of Northern Europe Lille is accessible by motorway, by TGV and close to the Eurostar.
