Rodemack

Medieval citadel

The medieval flavour of one of France’s most beautiful towns
Step back in French history within the ramparts of Lorraine’s “mini Carcassonne”; there’s lots to see all year round.
Wander the narrow lanes as you ask yourself which castle tower you left your horse tethered to. By Jove!

Children can imagine themselves as princesses and knights in the sumptuous surroundings of Rodemack medieval city. All it takes is a walk through the winding, hilly streets, among the towers and ramparts.
We recommend taking a guided tour and making the most of the events that take place all year round. A medieval kitchen garden will fascinate herbalists and those interested in heritage vegetables. Even the Post Office has been preserved in its original style.

DON’T MISS OUT: Rodemack Medieval Festival, in early summer every year!

Metz

Imperial Quarter

From Romanesque to art deco, designed by architects from all over Europe.

The Imperial Quarter was built around the station, upon the orders of Emperor William II. Its architecture harmoniously combines the colours and trends of the Belle époque.

Strolling through the beautiful architecture of the Imperial Quarter of Metz gives you a real sense of the 47 years the city spent under German annexation, from 1871 to 1918.
The Emperor ordered the construction of a “New City”, close to the station. The result is a heady mix of architectural styles.

Spend an hour wandering the streets of the Imperial Triangle with your children and have fun spotting the styles: neo-gothic, neo-baroque, neo-Renaissance, Jugendstil, Romanesque...

Saint-Étienne Cathedral

Visit “God’s Lantern”

The perfect opportunity for parents and children alike to immerse themselves in culture, art, religion and history at Moselle’s most important historic building.

Manderen

Malbrouck Castle

“Malbrouck has left for war” sing these noble stones, echoing the French children’s song.

In the land of three borders stands a 15th century castle. After an extraordinary reconstruction project, it now hosts large events in its grandiose surroundings.

Magnificent Malbrouck castle perches on a rocky outcrop that dominates the region, overlooking the village of Manderen.
The moment the guide begins to tell its thrilling tale, children of all ages will be enthralled. Even the reconstruction project was an exhilarating journey from ruin to renewal. Displays trace five centuries of history.
Every year, festivals, shows and major cultural events take place within the castle walls. The castle draws large crowds to its hilltop home and is one of the “Grands sites de Moselle”.

TÉPACAP: OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

High ropes, laser quest in the forest, exciting games: this friendly, family-run business offers group stays, with accommodation in wooden tipis. New attractions every year.

Chase one another around the forest and feel the thrill of the rope bridges... “Look, Dad”, shout older kids as they dare clip themselves to the cables of the treetop adventure course. Hearts race as they face the void, but fortunately the harness is securely attached. The park offers routes of various heights, from 2 m to 11 m. Feel like a squirrel as you leap from branch to branch on a wire.

In the enchanted village, younger children can explore tree houses connected by rope bridges. Thanks to the nets, they will feel completely safe, while also developing their motor skills. Kids over 6 can challenge their parents in laser quest, a fun team game that will see whole families chasing each other around the forest. There’s no danger, but plenty of running, diving behind trees for shelter... And trying to take out mum or dad by spotting their head under their helmet.

A day out kids of all ages will love!
