A crossroads town, Remiremont is ideally situated on the Benelux-Basel axis at the junction of the Moselle and Moselotte valleys and is proud of its exceptional location, a genuine European intersection. The town is in the heart of one of the busiest industrial areas in southern Lorraine and is served today by the TGV Est. Its influence extends to large parts of the Hautes-Vosges and includes nearly 90,000 inhabitants.

A town steeped in history, Remiremont was founded in the 7th century by Romaric who left it his name (Romarici Mons = Mount Romaric). Improved over several centuries by Canonesses, the town developed in perfect harmony with its Abbey of Dames Nobles – which influenced all the courts of Europe – and whose Abbess had the status of Princess at the Diet of the Holy Roman Empire and only depended on the Pope on a spiritual level.

A town of art Remiremont has kept and enhanced its rich historical heritage. Called ‘La Coquette’, it is compared to a pretty woman because it knows how to make itself beautiful, be friendly and attractive: with its abbey district with its 18th century palace in a classical style, its canonical houses, its 13th century church of the Chapitre des Dames and its Romanesque crypt dating from the 11th century classified as a historical monument and also its high street arcades harbouring many shops, it combines the pleasure of relaxation with the discovery of its riches.

A modern town, Remiremont has equipped itself with all the amenities that will enrich your holiday in a pleasant setting. Today, the town is proud of the quality of its leisure facilities: a water sports and leisure centre, an equestrian centre with an Olympic-sized arena, a cinema, a fully equipped lake, not to mention the Greenway, which offers two circuits of about 30km each on which you can undertake various activities (walking, cycling, roller skating, roller skiing in the summer or cross-country skiing in winter…) in total safety.
