Located north of Haute-Marne, at the borders of Marne and Meuse, about ten kilometres from Der-Chantecoq Lake, Saint-Dizier is a former stronghold and industrial town which invites visitors to discover all its attractions. Walks around Jard and the ramparts, an old medieval castle converted into a sub-prefecture, an Art Nouveau tour of the town's cast iron ornaments (balconies, door panels etc.), taking in the works of architect Hector Guimard, and the municipal museum based in an old private mansion overlooking the pretty Square Winston Churchill, are some of the things to see along the way. The museum contains a variety of collections of fine art, cast iron ornaments, archaeology, ornithology and local history.
Fans of contemporary music should not miss the Musical'Été festival and its free outdoor concerts, which take place every year in late June/early July in Jard Park!
