Metz - Nancy

Metz and Nancy, two close cities, two contrasting histories

This stretch links Lorraine’s two major towns: Nancy and Metz. Each has a quite distinct history. The former is famed in particular for its 18th-century squares (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the latter for its majestic Gothic cathedral. Following the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71, Metz came under German rule for some time, while Nancy remained French, the new Art Nouveau style thriving there.

La Voie Bleue creates a fabulous link between the two towns, each a must for visitors.
