and the spas of the Vosges

Journey through a territory rich in history and wellness
On the banks of the Moselle River, wander through Épinal as you please: on foot or by bike, for a cultural and historical getaway, for a meditative stroll or for a shopping expedition. Its images are known around the world. Beyond the river and the most wooded town in France are the mountains of the Vosges, the origin of the springs used by the spa resorts.

Image Centre: traditions and know-how

Formally the Pellerin print works, the Épinal Imagerie represents know-how and imagery traditions handed down over three centuries. Today, designers reinterpret works from the past, and the fabrication of traditional popular images continues in the workshops. Next door, the Image Museum offers an exceptional collection of old images and contemporary works of art. The museum, together with the Imagerie, form the Image Centre.
