Alsace

Between the Rhine and the Vosges mountains, Alsace is peppered with picturesque villages full of smart, colourful houses, nestling in the foothills between vineyards and forests. Each of the Alsatian cities has a rich, diverse patrimony:
  • Strasbourg, whose old neighbourhoods around the cathedral find their place in the middle of the modern European metropolis, is also a very environmentally conscious city.
  • Colmar, an historic city whose beautiful Unterlinden Museum complements its sumptuous mansions.
  • Mulhouse, in keeping with its industrial tradition, attracts visitors for its museums – the most renowned being the Schlumpf brothers’ Automobile Museum.
Nature has endowed Alsace with many treasures to be discovered while travelling along the “Wine Road”. These wines are the perfect accompaniment to delicious local dishes such as sauerkraut, game, “flammeküche”, foie gras, and wonderful pastries, like “kougelhopf”, etc….

Lorraine

Certainly you are thinking of Baccarat-crystal and of great masters like Emile Gallé and the brothers Daume, who made Nancy the center of Art Nouveau decorative art and founded a school of international renown. Until today, their treasures are kept here.
But the “New Art” movement can also be encountered here in other aspects, be it in the footsteps of Jacques Gruber, who left a considerable number of Art Nouveau-style glass windows, or in the pieces of furniture by Jacques and Louis Majorelle or Eugene Vallin.
The city of Nancy owes its unmistakable elegance to the former Polish King Stanislas, who in 1737 received from Louis XV. the Duchy of Lorraine (Lorraine). Thanks to its generosity, Lorraine has an heritage rich in architectural beauties.
What makes Lorraine a short trip so interesting is that there is still much to discover: whether castles like Lunéville or the Basilica of Saint-Nicolas de Port, the cathedrals of Metz, the crystal capital of Baccarat, or the magnificent nature reserves. Not to forget the mirabelles, which are grown here on about 5000 km ² of orchards and celebrated in Metz, the last weekend in August, 

CHAMPAGNE-ARDENNE

The sites and monuments of Champagne-Ardenne reflect the rich history of the region and give you a glimpse of its glorious past.
Invasions, cultural currents, trade… the region has kept the best of all these influences: Reims, the City of the Coronations of the Kings of France; Sedan and its imposing fortress; Langres, a fortified citadel surrounded by ramparts; Troyes, the capital of knitwear and a historic stage in the Fairs of Champagne.
But nature is preserved too and can be spectacular when the migratory birds stop off at the lakes or when you hear the belling of rutting deer in the deep forests…Lawns of orchids, giant bonsais, majestic rivers and streams, deep valleys, inland seas, grandiose landscapes…
History and legend, tasting and secrets, wineries and tourist trails, find out everything you want to know about Champagne-Ardennes.
