Lorraine has a wonderfully rich pottery heritage, with a tourist route called the Lorraine Faience Route based on it and covering the whole region.
From Longwy in the north to Bruyères in the south, from Toul in the west to Sarreguemines in the east, this circuit takes the visitor from factories to museums and shops, discovering the pottery made in Lorraine.
One of the most famous towns, Sarreguemines has two museums and a contemporary landscaped garden, telling the story of pottery. There are collections of machines and tools, on display in an old factory, for visitors to learn about the manufacturing techniques.
Other sights to see are the Badonviller ceramic workshop and museum, the blue faience from the 17th and 18th centuries at the Henri-Mathieu Museum in Bruyères, the glazed stoneware of Rambervillers, and the collections of the Museum of Art and History in Toul and the Museum of Enamels and Faience in Longwy!
