World famous wines, charming villages, natural wonders, unique gastronomy: The “Grand Est” region has the very best to offer, all within a beautiful setting.
The Grand Est region, a unification of the former regions of Alsace, Champagne-Ardenne and Lorraine in the eastern part of France, offers an astounding wealth and diversity of tourist attractions. The region is filled with beautiful lakes, mountains, rivers and other natural wonders. Consider a visit to the Forest of Argonne, the Vosges Massif, Montagne de Reims Regional Natural Park or the Regional Natural Park of Ballons des Vosges. These spaces are ideal for nature walks, horseback riding, mountain-biking and other outdoor activities.
The region is also home to UNESCO World Heritage sites including the fortifications of Vauban in Longwy; Grande-Île and Neustadt in Strasbourg; the hillsides, houses and cellars of Champagne; and Place Stanislas, Place de la Carrière and Place d’Alliance in Nancy.
The Grand Est region will particularly delight wine-lovers. A visit and tasting session in the cellars and vineyards of Champagne is, of course, an absolute must for oenophiles. Along the Alsace Wine Route, you can discover the secrets and flavors of such artisanal wines as the sylvaner, pinot blanc, noir or gris, riesling and Gewürztraminer.
