Guide of Champagne-Ardenne - Tourism, holidays & weekends in Champagne-Ardenne

Champagne-Ardenne in north-eastern France, not far from Belgium and Luxembourg, has a rich architectural and religious heritage, but also a natural and gastronomic one. You can learn about the world-famous sparkling wine for special occasions and its land by travelling the famous Champagne road, dotted with pretty villages and prestigious cellars.

As well as these wine-related treasures, Champagne-Ardenne also has many more surprises in store, like its Gothic cathedrals, fortified or timber-framed churches, and Cities of Art and History boasting a wealth of attractions. Troyes, the medieval city with ten listed churches, is a must for anyone wishing to admire some remarkable period stained glass windows. Sedan's immense castle fort, the sumptuous Place Ducale in Charleville-Mézières, Reim's Gothic cathedral, the Basilica of Our Lady of the Thorn (Notre-Dame de l'Épine), the half-timbered houses and religious buildings of Châlons-en-Champagne, the fortified town of Langres or the Château du Grand Jardin in Joinville are some of the flagship destinations to admire during your stay in the region.

When it comes to outdoor pursuits, the Ardennes and Reims Mountain Regional Nature Parks, Lake Der-Chantecoq and the four lakes of Pays de Langres, or the Trans-Ardennes Greenway have plenty for lovers of walks and water sports to enjoy.
