Travel Guide to Lorraine Province in France

Lorraine is one of the regions in France where there are many places to visit and activities to enjoy when you travel in France.

Lorraine is famous for two things, its quiche and De Gaulle's double-barred cross, an emblem of Lorraine chosen by the resistance fighters in WWII.

Unfortunately, this region was the site of the battle of Verdun in WW1 in which one million men died and today veterans still come to this place on the Armistice Day.  And it is from the haunting solitude of the WWI battlefields to the elegantly refined beauty of one of the cities, Nancy, that this region can be really appreciated.

Lorraine Province of France

But Lorraine has two elegant cities and both have also been capitals..

Nancy is now popular for its art nouveau architecture and Metz for its stained glass and stunning cathedral, plus Place Stanilas, a 18th century masterpiece, is enthroned in the heart of this city.

Metz cathedral, with its Chagall stained-glass windows, stands on the banks of the Moselle.

You can also enjoy walks in the unspoiled Lorraine countryside or relax at one of the many spas.

The spas of Contrexéville and Vittel will take good care of you and yet the Lorraine is on a big scale.  A scale that nature shows at its best with largely unspoiled countryside, rolling farmlands and the major rivers of the Moselle, Meurthe and Meuse, all set on the luxuriantly forested stage of the Lorraine plateau.

But in the bars (which are some of the most popular Lorraine meeting spots), a glass of Mirabelle wine goes very well with a slice of quiche lorraine.
