Discover the territory


You are the heart of this region called Lorraine! Pays Thionvillois is part of the North of Moselle – Grand Est region –, which is located 30 km away from Luxemburg and Germany. It is a place that is characterised by the richness of its borders.

Traces of the past can be found everywhere in this area which is dominated by the presence of the Moselle river. The river flows slowly and majestically through the valley and vines cling to its sides at every meander. Nearby, the castles stand guard peacefully over the neighbouring borders whilst several kilometres away below the surface, there are sites which have been transformed into places of remembrance.

The three-border area is a rich area where the military Heritage stands close to ancient castles and religious buildings. This rich territory is also characterised by its mining and industrial Heritage. Culture is also present inside the museums. During your journey, discover the city’s alley which are full of history and which are a lively part of the territory.

To fully appreciate this area, do not fail to enjoy its rich natural heritage of forests and plateaux where you can gaze at more than 25 different species of orchid or also leisurely hike or cycle along well-signposted routes.

This is quite a place!
