Travel Guide
Mars Gate featuring a sunset, heritage architecture and heritage elements

In the heart of the Champagne-Ardenne region, Reims is an architectural, cultural and gastronomic gem that is well worth a visit.

The sacred city of the kings of France, it is an extraordinary place to visit for art and history lovers, and is full of treasures that you'll love exploring.

The city is home to four UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Palace of Tau, the former Archbishop's palace, Notre-Dame Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic art and a place sacred to the kings of France, the Basilica and Saint-Rémi Museum. It also has numerous town houses and museums, such as the Musée de la Vigne.

Reims is equally renowned for its local specialities, such as pink biscuits, pain d'épices and its ham. Be sure to dine at one of the many restaurants to discover the flavours of the region.

And what would Reims be without the famous sparkling beverage for which the city is internationally renowned? Be sure to visit the vineyards and sample champagne. Remember to book ahead though, as this is very popular with tourists. Champagne houses based here include Pommery, Mercier, Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger and Lanson.

For nature-lovers, the Montagne de Reims Regional Natural Park is the perfect spot for fantastic hikes. The city also holds a number of events, such as the Sacres du Folklore and the Flâneries musicales de Reims in June, or the Weekend d'Excellence automobile in September.

In Reims, the summers are warm and the winters very cold. The best time to visit the city is between May and September. The city has excellent road links and is also only 45 minutes from Paris by high-speed train.

Come and be captivated by the charms of Reims, a decidedly modern town with a rich history!
