Region of the Mirabelle plum, Lorraine has a rich cultural, historic and military heritage. Important memorials, cities packed with things to see and do, such as Nancy, Metz or Bar-le-Duc, renowned spa towns, the Vosges massif and the Regional Nature Parks great for hiking, the 700 kilometres of waterways, and the traditions of Lorraine are some of the opportunities on offer to visitors.
The Meurthe-et-Moselle offers visitors art and tradition with the artistic movement of the Nancy School and the famous Baccarat crystal glassworks but also by the historic and architectural heritage of the city of Nancy and the Saint-Nicolas-de-Port basilica.
The Meuse is marked by an intense past, especially in Verdun which is home to the World Centre for Peace today. The département's countryside is also home to the Lorraine Regional Nature Park and the Madine lake.
The Moselle is home to the city of Metz, capital of Lorraine and known for its magnificent Gothic Saint-Etienne cathedral, but also to the military works of the Maginot Line and the spa town of Amnéville.
Forest areas with their many waymarked footpaths, mountain lakes, but also renowned spa towns, such as Vittel, Contrexéville and Plombières-les-Bains, are not to be missed in the Vosges.
