"Reims" Reims by Erin74
Reims Travel Guide: 313 reviews and 1,002 photos
Reims (which the French pronounce as "Rahns") is located about 90 minutes east of Paris, in the heart of France's champagne region. Reims is celebrated not only for its proximity to the many champagne houses and vineyards of the area, but for its lively atmosphere and many shopping options. You'll also find that this area is very interesting historically. Many fierce battles were fought in the area in World War I and World War II, so you'll see war monuments and cemetaries all over the countryside.
While this area is very French (you'll find fewer English speakers here than in Paris, definitely!), it also has German influences, which you'll notice on dinner menus in town.
Reims is noted for its lovely cathedral, one of the finest of its type. The French kings were crowned here, once upon a time. It is famous for its dramatic architecture and the "smiling angel" located near the front door.
If you're a champagne afficionado, Reims is the place to be. From here you can tour many different champagne houses. The stores in town sell endless varities of champagne and the restaurants have extensive champagne lists.
