Lille (Dutch: Rijsel) is a medium-sized city in the Hauts-de-France region of northern France with a very large student population. This city has a strong industrial background, but, after some difficult years, it is now known throughout France for its handsome city centre and its very active cultural life.


Lille is France's fifth largest metropolitan area. It is located to the country's north, on the Deûle River, near the border with Belgium.


Lille has a very nice city centre, excellently suited for a city trip. Most of the sights can be combined in a walking tour.

Must see
  • La Vieille Bourse. 1653. Right between two picturesque squares, Place du Général-de-Gaulle and Place du Théâtre, this former commercial exchange still plays a central part in the life of the city. You may find booksellers and flower markets in the inner court.
  • Place du Général-de-Gaulle (Grand'place). The main square of Lille. It has many lovely historic houses, like the neo-Flemish headquarters of local newspaper La Voix du Nord, and a fountain with the statue of a goddess, "la Grande Déesse" (1843).
  • Place Rihour. Surrounded by restaurants, houses the tourist information centre inside its main attraction, the Palais Rihour (1453).
  • Town Hall. Worth a look and can be combined nicely with a visit to the Porte de Paris (1692).
  • Opera, 2 rue des Bons Enfants, + 33 3 28 38 40 50. Built in 1923. Opéra de Lille on Wikipedia 
  • Place du Théàtre. Built in 1921. Offers a magnificent sight, especially when lit-up at night.
  • Citadelle. An interesting example of defensive military architecture, built by Vauban, a famous French military architect, under the reign of Louis the Fourteenth. In the same area is a zoo (free of charge) and a lovely park. Citadel of Lille on Wikipedia 
  • Cathédrale Notre Dame de la Treille. The construction of this cathedral started in 1854 and was eventually finished only in 1999. Lille Cathedral on Wikipedia
  • Take a stroll through the old quarter of the city, known as Vieux Lille, and enjoy the quiet, cobble-stone streets, the variety of stylish designer shops and gourmet restaurants. More notable streets like Rue de la Monnaie and Rue Esquermoise are definitely worth the trip.
