Know-how and craftsmanship
Moselle, land of skilled artists and craftspeople
The natural resources of the Northern Vosges forest (wood, sand, water and bracken) made Moselle a hotbed for skilled craftspeople, with a strong tradition of ceramics and glass, the so-called “Arts du feu”. Meisenthal, Vallérysthal and Saint-Louis-lès-Bitche are the most prestigious names in glass and crystal, wWhile the biggest names in pottery and ceramics are Niderviller and Sarreguemines. Discover this artistic heritage in the local craft museums.
The region is also known for its stained glass, ironwork, clog-making, wickerwork and candle-making.
