And when the sun comes up in the morning, there’s an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast ready and waiting for you.

VIP discovery of Art Nouveau

Nancy is a city where Art Nouveau has left an indelible mark, making it a genuine open-air museum. In the late 19th century, following the Annexation, Nancy became a border city and saw the arrival of numerous artists and industrialists. As a result, it developed a dynamism conducive to the development of Art Nouveau and became one of Europe’s most active centres in this respect.

During an exclusive guided tour organised by DESTINATION NANCY-Tourist Office, you’ll set off in the footsteps of one of the movement’s major artists. As 2022 is “International Year of Glass”, the stained-glass windows created by the great master glassmaker Jacques Gruber are in the spotlight. Explore the extraordinary diversity of his body of work and admire his most famous creations, including Crédit Lyonnais, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and L’Excelsior Brasserie.

A stroll through Nancy’s historic centre

Extend your visit and explore Nancy’s historic centre at your own pace! The unmissable Place Stanislas, with its fountains and gilded gateways, is a bedazzling spectacle, all classical architecture and radiant light. The buildings that border the square house the Town Hall, the Opera House, the Grand Hotel de la Reine and the Museum of Fine Arts. Entirely pedestrianised, it’s an open invitation to leisurely contemplation.

Place d'Alliance and Place de la Carrière are just a few steps away. The three squares form an 18th-century architectural ensemble inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Continue on your way and head for Parc de la Pépinière, a true haven of peace in the heart of the city. And beyond Arc Héré, the Old Town and its medieval streets await you. During your weekend in Nancy, take the time to visit one of its many museums, do a bit of shopping, and sample its “Nancy Passions Sucrées” specialities!
