Epinal, a little urban centre at the heart of the Vosges
Epinal is the capital of the Vosges district, a small city with some 35,000 inhabitants. It is well served in terms of transport (high-speed rail station, less than two hours by road from major airports and a little bit more than two hours by train from Paris), and lies not far from the urban centres of Nancy, Metz, Mulhouse and Strasbourg. Services offered to families are worthy of large cities, combined with a high quality of life and attractive housing conditions.
Epinal also has a culture of arts and paper – everybody knows the Images of Epinal – well-conserved historic districts with colourful fronts and many green spaces. Set close to major spa centres, it offers wellbeing and relaxation to its inhabitants.
The city is surrounded by forests and lakes, and provides many opportunities for discovering its exceptional natural environment. It is dynamic in the areas of culture and sport, and is also an economic hub in its region.
