This region was particularly affected by the fighting in Ethe and Baranzy. Its hilly, woody landscapes take you across the border, in the footsteps of the soldiers, as well as civilians who were not left unharmed by the fighting.
These small market towns and villages, which are typical of the Lorraine region, are peppered with remarkable farms and churches. These architectural gems are interspersed with places of remembrance from the Great War.

The agenda is an invaluable tool and will help you organise your weekends during the Great War centenary year. It will also enable you to take part in free commemorative and festive events, by providing you with an exclusive à la carte programme!
After the Great War, which began 100 years ago, all that remained of this region were battlefields and destroyed villages. In the same place, you will now find idyllic landscapes and picturesque villages. In order to help you visit the region, the CHEMINS DE MEMOIRE project has developed 10 CIRCUITS, ranging from 35 - 80 km. As you pass along the trails, information points will help you find out more about the special and little known history of the Battle of the Frontiers.
You can pick up a free map from the region's tourist offices.
