Grâce-Hollogne is a municipality of Belgium. It lies in the country's Walloon Region and Province of Liege. The municipality is effectively a part of the greater Liège conurbation, separated from Liège city centre by the municipality of Saint-Nicolas. Included within its boundaries is Liège airport.
On 1 January 2006 Grâce-Hollogne had a total population of 21,753. The total area is 34.24 km², which gives a population density of approximately 635 inhabitants per km².
Grâce-Hollogne was formed by the grouping of former municipalities Bierset, Grâce-Berleur, Hollogne-aux-Pierres, Horion-Hozémont, and Velroux, along with part of Mons-lez-Liège. The killing of four demonstrators on 30 July 1950 in Grâce-Berleur was one of the most significant moments in the so-called Royal Question of 1950, which grew out of resentment towards King Leopold III and his actions in World War II.
In June 1995 it was from Grâce-Hollogne that Julie Lejeune and Mélissa Russo were infamously abducted to become victims of the notorious serial killer and child molester Marc Dutroux. One of the municipality's schools is now named Ecole Julie et Melissa in honour of the murdered girls and flowers are still left regularly on the Julie & Melissa Monument.
