"The Arvô" in Limburg
Building housing the former town hall and the former justice of the peace, and signified, from the Place de Limbourg, by "L'Arvô", which means "covered passage" in Liège Walloon - Listed monument
The old town hall occupied the centre of the square until its destruction in 1675.
A new town hall was then built from 1681 to 1687 on a well-situated but relatively modest plot. It was accessed via the “Arvô”, which in Liège Walloon means a “covered passage”. At the time, the addition of this extra bay and of a floor above the neighbouring cornice gave this public building a certain presence on the square.
The Arvo is a former justice of the peace and a listed building. It is now the home of the Tourist Office, the hub of tourist and cultural activities in Limburg. Here you will find all the tourist information you need, a historical room with a large model of Limburg in 1632 and various art exhibitions.
