Going out in Lille

What to do or to visit?

Take a walk to the Citadelle Park: It’s the biggest park of Lille where you can go jogging or just sit on the grass when the sun starts to appear! (Yes it’s possible, even in Lille!)

Lose yourself in the streets of the Old Lille: The Old Lille is really representative of the charm of this city. Indeed, with its cobbled streets, it’s the perfect place to do shopping in little beautiful shops and to go into cosy bars and cafés

Visit the Beffroi of the Hotel de Ville: Inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, this monument is an unmissable place to visit in Lille. At 104 meters high, you will have the chance to have a panoramic view over Lille and the surrounding area.

Stroll on the Grand’Place: located in the heart of Lille, it’s the biggest and most famous place of the city. Go there to have a drink or simply admire the beauty of buildings

Visit the Palais des Beaux-Arts: This museum is one of the richest french museums. This museum gathers above all prestigious european and french paintings in a beautiful building of the XIX century. Perfect for a studious and enriching afternoon!

Open everyday except tuesday from 10.00am to 6.00pm and monday from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.
