Nancy walks ::

A piece of the countryside

The urban crown of the 1900s district.

A circular walking tour discovering the outskirts of Nancy’s urbanized quarter between 1880 and 1914. Throughout the walk, the city reveals its diversity such as its multitude of programs (industries, housing, universities, hospitals, etc.), its various urban forms, landscape, and topography, and its abundance in architects as well as architectural styles and approaches.

This walk, providing a large-scale view of the urban expansion during the 1900s, is also punctuated with several parks and public gardens.
