Journey to the Enlightenment at Lunéville Chateau.
In the time of Stanislaw Leszczynski, Duke of Lorraine, the greatest minds of the Age of Enlightenment congregated at Lunéville Chateau. With its French gardens, it’s easy to imagine the splendours of the court. Lunéville has preserved numerous treasures from its pompous past. A visit to Baccarat is a must, where the famous crystal house has been a symbol of excellence for more than 250 years.

Lunéville Château

Welcome to the court of the Dukes of Lorraine. In 1698, young Duke Leopold decided to make this his primary residence. Stanislaw lived here as well, in all the splendour and elegance he was known for. Gardens and additions were built to welcome guests such as Voltaire and Émilie du Châtelet. The majestic site remains untouched, for a phenomenal journey to the Age of Enlightenment.


Our tip

Just near Baccarat, be sure to visit the Les Sources d’Hercule Museum in Deneuvre and discover the largest collection dedicated to Hercules, the famous hero of Roman mythology.

A new museum layout plays on contrasts: raw materials complement the brilliance, utmost refinement and extravagance of the in-house creations. Not-to-be-missed.
