Ludres is located approximately 170 miles (274 kilometers) from Paris, the country's capital, and about 75 miles (121 kilometers) from Strasbourg.
From much-loved, tourist hotspots to lesser known delights, Alsace-Lorraine is crisscrossed with natural and cultural attractions. Places within a relatively short distance of Ludres are Punerot, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast, and Pont-a-Mousson, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south.
When you are ready to venture further afield visit the nearest center. Nancy is around 5 miles (8 kilometers) away and is home to attractions such as Place de la Carriere, Musee Aquarium de Nancy and Musee de l'Ecole de Nancy. Marcel Picot Stadium, Parc de la Pepiniere and Nancy Hotel de Ville are other good spots to visit.
Travelers to Alsace-Lorraine often go to the area's open-air museums and open-air markets. Follow the threads of the region's rich cultural makeup at Alsace-Lorraine's history museums and art museums.
Finding one of the city walking tours and winery tours can be a good way to get an understanding of Alsace-Lorraine.
Alsace-Lorraine cuisine possesses its own unique characteristics and flavors, so do visit Alsace-Lorraine's cafés and restaurants. Of course, no journey through this region is complete without getting a taste of choucroute garnie (sauerkraut with sausages, salt pork and potatoes) or coq au riesling (Alsace version of coq au vin). Alsace-Lorraine dishes such as lemon glazed madelaines are also a good thing to try. After dinner, consider going out for a nice glass of wine in a bar. Get a glass of Sylvaner or Pinot Blanc.
When the time comes to leave Ludres, say goodbye the way French's do, with a hearty "Au revoir / À bientôt."
