Reims Travel Guide: 313 reviews and 1,002 photos

The gothic Cathedral - The vineyards

Reims - northern France - situated an hour from Paris, at crossroads with the European motorways A4-E50 (Paris - Strasbourg), A34 (Ardennes – Belgium) and A26 – E17 (Calais – Dijon - Lyon)
Travelling to this city is enjoying the vineyards - the monuments and tasting the golden pearls of Champagne.
Three different types of landscapes - perfect for cultivating the famous champagne :
First : le "Pinot Noir", "raisin noir au jus incolore", has the reputation to give "body" to the champagne !
Second : le "Meunier" cultivated for it's fruity taste and finally the cultivation of the famous "Chardonnay" the white grape giving flavour to the champagne.
The secret to make champagne is the labour of the cellar master ! Mixing and cultivating this three types of grapes is the most hidden secret of making champagne !
Please give me this secret formula !

    Good photos and an enjoyable page, Luc. I don't know whether the fountain is fizzing champagne or water, but there is an almost identical fountain in Sydney! (Sadly, it splashes water) :))

    The cathedral of Reims looks so beautiful! Hahaha, and ordering a Leffe here does need some 'lef', but drinking a Leffe on a sunny afternoon sounds perfect and I actually would prefer it over the champagne :-)))

    Thanks for the visit to my Venice page. Next year we are planning on visiting France so your tips and travelogues are really intriguing. With the New Year so close the champagne bubbles must be getting quite excited ;-) Thx...Tomm

    Nice travelogues and tips. I've been thinking about Reims lately because of Rossini's opera "The Journey to Reims" (Frankfurt am Main Favorite Tips by Nemorino).
