Guide of Lorraine - Tourism, holidays & weekends in Lorraine

Located not far from Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg, the land of the Mirabelle plum and vins gris wine not only boasts a rich natural, cultural and gastronomic heritage, but also a significant historical legacy, as evidenced by the First World War memorial sites around Verdun.

A land of traditions and skills, Lorraine boasts such prestigious sites as the Baccarat and Saint-Louis crystal works, the Imagerie in Epinal and the Lunéville pottery factory. The famous Art Nouveau movement has made its mark wonderfully on Nancy city centre. A little further north, the famous city of Metz reveals its most beautiful gems, with its Gothic cathedral, romantic canals and many parks and gardens.

An ideal country holiday destination, Lorraine can also be proud of its remarkable natural environment. With their many signposted trails, the Lorraine and Ballons des Vosges Regional Nature Parks are a must for anyone wishing to enjoy a hike or a botanical excursion. Lovers of relaxation meanwhile can rest and recuperate in one of Lorraine's five spa resorts. Whether you choose Amnéville-les-Thermes, Bains-les-Bains, Contrexéville, Plombières-les-Bains or Vittel, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to enjoying the health benefits of their thermal waters, not to mention the many leisure activities available on site!

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.
