One and a half hours from Paris by TGV and in the heart of Lorraine, it is the two rivers that give Meurthe-et-Moselle its name as they flow through it. Nancy is the prefecture and its main town. Luneville, Longwy, Pont-à-Mousson and Toul are other important urban centres. Meurthe-et-Moselle is a land of desire and sharing, and also welcomes you to its campsites.

The nuggets of Meurthe et Moselle

Built between 1751 and 1755, the Place Stanislas in Nancy became a pedestrian square 15 years ago. Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, along with its sister squares, the Place d'Alliance and the Place de la Carrière, it is a perfect example of French classicism and is considered the most beautiful royal square in Europe. In summer, it becomes the scene of a real sound and light show... not to be missed!

Called the little Versailles of Lorraine, the Château de Lunéville dates from the 18th century. Its museum offers a well-designed tour of the castle and its history. You should go for a walk in the gardens, authentic refuges, calm and peaceful. They are open all year round and represent a real green lung in the city.

Owned by the city of Nancy, the Villa Majorelle has reopened its doors after several months of restoration. The original decorations plunge you into the intimacy of the artist Louis Majorelle, one of the founders of the Art Nouveau movement, who lived in this house.

In Longwy, Vauban's fortifications are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Part of the ramparts have been preserved, opening up views of several of the town's monuments.

Longwy is also proud of its earthenware enamels, which are exclusive to the town in France. The Musée des Emaux de Faïence (Museum of Faience Enamels) presents decorative and prestigious works from the town's factories.

In Toul, the Saint-Etienne cathedral is the first Gothic cathedral in the Germanic Roman Empire. Its construction, between the 13th and 16th centuries, gives it several different styles, which was rare at the time. Its cloister is a real surprise, it is one of the largest in France. Children will love climbing the South Tower, a real sporting performance!


In the south-east of the department and located in the foothills of the Vosges mountains, the Pierre-Percée lake covers more than 300 hectares. It is the third largest artificial lake in Lorraine. Its atypical shape is reminiscent of a maple leaf and it looks like a large Canadian lake. In summer, you can take advantage of the cool water to swim, rest on the beach, fly over the lake in a zip line, paddle around and even fish.
