From the many towns in the region we have chosen four, each with its own fascinating heritage.

- Verdun, World Peace Capital with its Underground Citadel
- Epinal, the City of Prints
Spas in Lorraine
Centuries ago, the Celts, Romans and Gauls gathered to worship the water gods and goddesses in what is now the Lorraine region of northeastern France. Today, the Roman amphitheatre in Grand still stands above miles of underground conduits. Everywhere you turn, the green of nature is reflected in the blue of the waters.
At Amnéville, Bains-les-Bains, Contrexéville, Plombières, Vittel… the thermal cure flows from the hot springs of Lorraine in calm, comfort, elegance and idyllic surroundings, just as it has for the past twenty centuries.
Contrexeville, capital of slimness
The first known clients of thermal spring therapy in Lorraine were the Romans, two thousand years ago. Now it's your turn to come discover the curative powers of these waters while experiencing Lorraine's exceptional history and heritage.
