The best things to do in Lille

Since its designation as European Capital of Culture in 2004, there is no shortage of stuff to do in Lille. The Place of General de Gaulle is a good place to start your tour of places to visit in Lille. It is the central square of the city and is surrounded by interesting buildings.

Walking through the historic centre, Old Stock Exchange and the Theatre du Nord are some of the most interesting things to see in Lille. With striking architecture dating back to the seventeenth century, it is an ideal place to take a walk back in time.

Another of the top Lille attractions is the Vauban Citadel, a small fortified complex built by Sebastien Le Prestre between 1667 and 1670. The town hall and its bell tower, more popular things to do in Lille, were designed by architect Emile Dubuisson and built between 1924 and 1932. He was inspired by the Flemish houses with triangular gable roofs. The bell tower is one of the most popular attractions in Lille, as it is part of the prestigious UNESCO list of world heritage sites. So it's no surprise that many tourists, asking themselves what to do in Lille, head here!

Finally, for more unmissable Lille activities, head to the Museum of Fine Arts, better known as the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille, one of the most prestigious art galleries in France. It has a collection of paintings dating from the fifteenth to twentieth century, and French sculpture from the 19th century.
