For centuries, Lorraine has been a major European crossroads, resulting in a rich mixture of cultural influences. Today, it is an idyllic setting for holidays with a diverse historical and cultural heritage.


Along with Alsace, Lorraine has suffered as a tract of Europe over which nations have incessantly waged war. Lorraine became part of France in the late 18th century, after which there was a further period of German rule from 1872-1918, followed by a temporary re-annexation under Hitler. In the north and the east of the region, architecture, cuisine and language show Germanic influence, yet the people consider themselves thoroughly French.

With a strong industrial tradition, Lorraine is a treasure trove of arts and crafts, in particular crystalware, earthenware and enamelwork, with many historical examples on display in specialist museums. 

There are no less than three outstanding country parks, home to deer and wild boar, while mountain goats scale the high pastures of the Vosges mountains. The Vosges crests formed part of the battlefront in World War One, and military requirements led to the building of the road now known as the Route des Cretes, which runs near the highest peaks. It goes past more WWI sites than vineyards and more ‘balloons’ (the highest peaks are so-called because they are round and bald) than villages, but the view from the top is utterly breathtaking.
