Moselle, a wealth of nature

In the Lorraine Regional Park, any season is the perfect time to discover a remarkable natural landscape. 

In the Northern Vosges Regional National Park, named a global biosphere reserve by UNESCO, nature is everywhere you look. 

Moselle is rich in contrasting landscapes, contributing to its diversity of plant and animal species. In the west, chalky slopes wooded with oak and beech flank the meandering river Moselle.  

The east is the land of lakes, fishing and birdlife.  Over 450 km from the coast, halophytic plants such as sea asparagus are an unexpected sight on the banks of the salt lagoons. 

At the gateway to Alsace, the sandstone of the Vosges creates a mountain range on a human scale, with high forests punctuated by marshland, home to incredible carnivorous plants.
