  • Lier - Open-air city mall

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lier is great city for shopping.

    What makes it so special is the (almost) absence of those mega-shops you find in every city on the western hemisphere.
    Lier is packed with little, original shops.

    So, explore and spend in 5 km connected shoppingstreets.

    Every now and then, all the shops are opened on sunday afternoon.

    pigeons for sale !

    Every sunday there is a large pigeon market at the central marketsquare in Lier.
    People from all over the world come here to buy pigeons from belgian pigeon breeders.
    The pigeon on sale are juvenile with papers of how great flyers there parents are, or older ones that have their own medals.

    If you are looking for soup-pigeons you are on the wrong market here....

    Antwerpsestraat, Lier

    I only know of one shopping street in Lier, but I am sure there are more. The Antwerpsestraat is the connecting street between the station and the Grote Markt and here you will find all the major shops that can be found in other cities too.

    What to buy: Especially cloths and shoes.

    from the artist himself: buy some art

    an artist from Lier

    In the Begijnhof we saw an open window and there he was, the painter from Lier.
    He showed us some of his pictures and we had a nice talk. And although we didn't buy anything from him, he gave us some brochures of his city.

    One of Lier's typical products is lace. It's really beautiful and off high quality.

    Fine textileworks of Lier: Lier's Lace

    A king's statue near Saint Gummarus-church

    Already in medieval times it was famous wide outside the borders of the Bourgondian empire. Lier's lace was one of the finest textiles that could be found in Europe and still one can obtain this fine artwork in many forms, shapes and measurements. So, if you want to have a souvenir, maybe this is what your looking for.
