Spread along the banks of the Meuse River, La Batte is the name given to the Sunday market in Liège. In Walloon, the word batte means an embankment or quay. Often presented as the oldest and biggest market in Belgium, La Batte is a very colourful place that attracts many visitors, including many inhabitants of neighbouring countries. It is therefore not rare to hear words in German or Dutch. On Sundays, it is often a good excuse for a stroll along the quays of the Meuse River.
