Map of Lorraine Region of France Including Metz Nancy Moselle Meuse Vosges Information Page


Moselle River, Metz, France

Lorraine, positioned in far northeastern France, is the only French region to have borders with three other countries: Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg. It also borders the French regions of Alsace, Franche-Comte and Champagne-Ardenne. The location of Lorraine led to it being considered a strategic asset by France, and it today has a very important role in European affairs, as the crossroads of four nations. Many important rivers run through Lorraine, including the Moselle, Meurthe, Meuse and Rhine.

The most well-known wine of the region is the pinot noir of the Cotes de Toul. There are additional, high-quality vineyards in the Moselle River valley, as well as the Seille, Metz and Sierck valleys.
