Holiday reviews from Harskirchen
Discovering the diversity of Lorraine by boat.
We enjoyed discovering Lorraine by boat and all its varied landscapes. Some great highlights for us were the city break to explore Nancy, family water activities at the Etang du Stock lake and visiting the Castle of Lumières de Lunéville.
