Lorraine Things to Do

  • Chateau Stanislas, Commercy

    continuing the saga of Stanislas in Lorraine, this is a wonderful rendition to their contribution to the Lorraine region of France. The castle is in the nice town of Commercy in the Meuse dept 55A bit descriptive work: The courtyard, closed to the outside by a monumental grid, is framed on both sides by the common, fits in a semi-circle of the...

  • Come see history of not to be repeated...

    This is Verdun, it is a magical tragic city in the region of Lorraine, dept of the Meuse, France. Trying to bring back my photos here.....It is the history of a great battle in WWI, with lots of memorials alongside the river Meuse and into the countryside. As one historian rightful said, « Verdun est le symbole et le sommet de la Grande Guerre....

  • Monument to Fallen and Victory Verdun

    another reminder of painful past that needs to be remembered always.The monument was erected on top of a monumental staircase that connects lower town (street Mazel) and Uptown (place de la libération), between two perforated walls of false battlements, in part collapsed of the old ramparts of firmness (12-13C) which circled the medieval town. From...

  • a memory for all at Douaumont

    this is a resting place of many , many unknown to many but should be remembered by all. Douaumont is a peaceful place when times were not quiet.The monument was thought of after the battle of Verdun. It is a cloister of 137 meters long with tombs for about 130 000 unknown soldiers, the nazis and the French all mix in no particular order.In front of...

  • Cathedral St Etienne de Toul

    St Stephen's cathedral in Toul, one of the nicest one, of the so many in France. I had passed by but it is impressive to stop by for more.I give some bit of history.The first cathedral, dedicated to saint Stephen and Notre-Dame, was built in the second half of the 5C. The episcopal group originally includes three churches, one dedicated to the...

  • Place Stanislas ,Nancy

    This is huge and the center of it all in Nancy, you got to be here passing by. I have found a couple photos.Desired by the Duke of Lorraine Stanislas Leszczyński, it was built between 1751 and 1755 under the direction of the architect Emmanuel Héré. Its name and its central statue evolved at the discretion of the upheaval in the history of...

  • Inclined boat lift of Arzviller

    One of the highlights at the Rhine-Marne-Canal is the boat lift of Arzviller, with a trough that can carry up to three boats. It was built 1960 and lifts/descends ships by 45 meters. Before, you had to go to 17 locks on 4 km, which took a whole day. Not funny and tough work! Some information (in French and German only) on how the boat lift is...

  • Saar-Cole-Canal(Canal des Houillières de...

    This canal diverges from the Rhine-Marne-Canal at the lake “Etang de Gondrexange”. This lake is higher than the canal and is used as reservoir for both canals. There are some other lakes along the canal, and there’s even a canal bridge over one of the lakes which I found funny.If you come from the Rhine-Marne-Canal and want to continue on the...

  • Mittersheim

    Mittersheim is a little village at the Sarre-Canal and the place where we started with our boat trip. It has a little supermarket where you can get some food for the next days. Better get more than suddenly be stranded somewhere with neither a supermarket nor an open restaurant nearby, as we happened to be! If you look for a restaurant close-by,...

  • Xouaxange

    If you can't pronounce the name of this village then you are having the same problem as me... but the mooring for boats is very nice, with picnic tables and trees. There are some ruins in the village, but there’s not much to see. There’s an old church, and a restaurant next to it that offers some good choices. Xouaxange has no bakery, but if you...

    more
  • Tunnels of Niderviller

    Also very interesting if you drive on the Rhine-Marne-Canal are the tow tunnels near Arzviller. They are 480 m and 2310 m long, and it took us 20 to 30 minutes to go through the longer one.The tunnels are very small, so they are one-way with some traffic lights that indicated weather you can go or not.

  • Lutzelbourg

    Lutzelbourg is nice village at the Rhine-Marne-Canal. The canal directly goes through it. It’s a beautiful mountainous area, and there’s a ruined castle above the village.There are lots of possibilities to dock your boat in the village, and there’s a port (base of Locaboat). If you need water or electricity, you also can get it at one of the boxes...
