The Moselle flows through France, Luxembourg and Germany past pitoresque medieval towns and vertiginous hillsides filled with vines. It meanders leisurely from place to place, holding in store sights of fairy-tale castles or fortresses, some destroyed by long-ago battles or lovingly restored and maintained. Around every bend in the river, wine restaurants and small towns glued to the hillsides await, where time seems to stand still.

Toul is located in Lorraine Meurthe-et-Moselle, about 20 km west of Nancy, in the Grand-Est region.
Located on the Lyon-Trier route, Toul has been an economic hub since Roman times and had its peak when it formed the province of the three bishoprics together with Metz and Nancy. The affiliation to the French Kingdom in the 18th century made the city and the region prosper.
We find remarkable testimonies to its military past, where the walls of the city, bordering the Moselle and the old Rhine-Marne canal, prove that here was an important strategic place.
