Discover nature in widescreen

Each season, the landscapes of Lorraine dress to the nines, providing unbridled happiness and freedom. From the snow-capped peaks of Hautes-Vosges and large lakes to the rural countryside of Meuse and the hillsides of vines and blueberry bushes, recharge your batteries far from the hustle and bustle before grandiose panoramas.

With three regional nature parks, Lorraine invites you to show your love of nature however you want. Whether you love hiking, cycling or relaxing in a spa in the middle of a forest, see the big picture and, most importantly, take your time!

Centre Pompidou à Metz

My heart is torn between Nancy and Metz

A must-see pair during your holiday in Lorraine, Nancy and Metz have all the ingredients for a fantastic cultural weekend away. In Nancy, stroll through the Old Town, explore its famous ducal squares and discover its Art Nouveau architecture. As for Metz, the “garden city” takes you from Gallo Roman remains to 18th-century squares, not forgetting the famous Centre Pompidou-Metz, a masterpiece of contemporary art in striking contrast to the flamboyant Gothic cathedral.

One was voted “Best large city for biodiversity” while the other has won “Best town in France” multiple times. These complementary cities make for an unforgettable city break!
