    Map of Lier

    The best way to see Lier is on foot. Lier is really small with many little streets and parts where you cannot easily come by car.

    The tourist office has a nice walking tour, that goes along all the major must-sees of Lier. It is called Timmermanspad and is about 5.1 km long.

    In Lier you can make beautifull walks. Like this Timmermanspath. Timmermans is a famous citizen of Lier. He was a writer, but also made paintings. More about him in the general tips.
    As the sign shows the walk is just over 5 kilometers long.

    Bus station at the trainstation

    There is a regular bus driving from Antwerp (Rooseveltplaats) to Lier (Veemarkt).
    It will take you in about 35 minutes from the centre of Antwerp to the centre of Lier.
    You can take the bus 296 at the side of the Opera building at the Rooseveltplaats.



    There is also a bus connection to and from Mechelen. I don't know the number of the bus, but do check the website of Delijn and you will find out very easy.

    A small town has it's advantages

    Atmosphere and beauty reached in no time

    Lier isn't that big a town, but has plenty of parkingplaces. Therefor this is the best place to go for a few hours, a wonderful walk, a good diner or just ... for historical painted pleasure. The town can be reached from Mechelen, as well as from Antwerpen, by various roads and the main freeway connecting Antwerpen with Brussels. Parking is guided and rather easy. the tarifs are not that high, but bring small change for the machines as they do not take any paper money.

    Boattours over the canals of Lier

    Boattours show Lier in a different daylight

    It's quite something else and very relaxing to discover Lier by boat. From behind the Zimmertower (walk along the statue qith the sheeps) little boats are leaving to make a small guided tour over the canals. This way one sees the town from a different angle, which can be a real pleasure.

    When we walked up to the Zimmer tower we saw this red train pass by. Didn't take it, but you can probably get more info about it at the touristinfo office.

    Park outside the city

    by tompt Written Mar 26, 2004

    The city of Lier is not that big. If you park outside the citycenter it is free and you can easily walk to the center.
    This is the van Boeckellaan. Only 5 - 10 minutes from the marketsquare.
