Arry - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Moselle

Charming little village in the Pays Messin, in the heart of the Moselle, Arry takes place just twenty kilometers from Metz, in an exceptional natural setting. Perched on the shores of the Moselle, it is not far from Marieulles, Arnaville and Pommerieux.

Populated since the Gallo-Roman era, the town was long a dependency of the abbey of Gorze. Pilled in 1443 by the Ecorcheurs, armed troops who practiced the looting and the ransom, it then knows a more peaceful history and a connection with the kingdom of France in the second half of the eighteenth century. Annexed to the German Empire in the nineteenth century, it was also the scene of heavy fighting during the Second World War.

Arry continues to attract visitors today thanks to its rich cultural heritage and exceptional charm. The village is also an excellent starting point for exploring the Moselle Valley, the Seille Valley, the Moselle wine cellars, the spas and the Rupt de Mad valley.

Things to see and do

Opposite the church, the ancient Arry castle destroyed during the bombings of the Second World War has now disappeared, but still reveals beautiful terraced gardens and an impressive 18th century basin.

A 13th century fortified Romanesque style building, Saint-Arnould Church was built to replace a primitive chapel destroyed during a fire. Inside, it is possible to admire a beautiful Gothic choir with murals. The building was originally a fortified house with keep and is now listed as a Historical Monument.

It is impossible not to admire, during a walk, the fortified farm of Voisage. Built in the thirteenth century, it served as a post for horses in the seventeenth century, and bastioned enclosure in the eighteenth.

Several marked hiking trails allow you to appreciate the local fauna and flora as well as the surrounding cultural heritage.

With Arry Nature, you are on the grounds of a disappeared castle... The center of Arry is not a leisure center like the others, it is its natural environment, its history and its educational missions that make its originality.
