Pont-a-Mousson is located approximately 170 miles (274 kilometers) from Paris, the capital of France, and about 80 miles (129 kilometers) from Strasbourg.
Vacationing in just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a limited view into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So try to set aside some time to discover Alsace-Lorraine's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Saint-Maurice-sous-les-Cotes, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast, and La Maxe, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south of Pont-a-Mousson are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Approximately 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the southeast of Pont-a-Mousson is Nancy, a regional city where you can visit Musee de l'Ecole de Nancy, Nancy Cathedral and Nancy Hotel de Ville. If you still have time left, be sure to visit Place de la Carriere, Musee Aquarium de Nancy and Marcel Picot Stadium before heading back to Pont-a-Mousson.
If you ask residents for their must-see places around Pont-a-Mousson, more often than not they'll point to Alsace-Lorraine's fabulous open-air markets and open-air museums. To learn a little about the local culture, head to Alsace-Lorraine's art museums and history museums.
Travelers who prefer getting off the main tourist trail will enjoy Pont-a-Mousson's winery tours and city walking tours.
As you conclude your journey, pack your baggage and wish France a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
