The region of Lorraine stretching along the western border of Alsace is tucked in the northeast corner of France and bordered on its north by Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Whereas Alsace is known for its picturesque villages and lovely wines, Lorraine is well known for its rich military history. The Maginot Line stands today as a monument to French engineering genius and lost hopes. It was built as a brilliant but unsuccessful defense against the Germans during World War II. Also the American Cemetery in Saint Avold with its thousands of white crosses is testament to the brave soldiers who bravely fought for the allies. We currently have not found a lot of places to recommend to stay in Lorraine so you might want to consider our recommendations in neighboring Alsace.
