Fismes - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Marne

City Fismes is the entry door of Champagne. Between Reims and Soissons, Fismes was on the Route of coronations. Many royals spent their last night before Prince coronation in Reims.

Destroyed several times during the wars (including 95% in the First World War), Fismes is a city rich in history and anecdotes. A single Memorial Bridge in France reflects the past of the city.

Fismes today is a vibrant city with plenty of activities and events throughout the year.
