La botanique

From the Art Nouveau designs at the Ecole de Nancy (School of Nancy), to the countless gardens and green spaces, plant life is forever present in greater Nancy.

Co-managed by Grand Nancy and the University of Lorraine, the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens of Montet (Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques du Montet) has 12,000 different plant species and cannot be missed on any trip to Nancy. Another popular outing is a stroll through the jardin d’altitude of Haut-Schitelet in the Vosges, which is managed by the same group, to the same exceptional level, but (due to its location) with a focus on alpine flora.

The Pépinière Park with its 23 hectares (rosary, and stunning trees), the jardin Renaissance (Renaissance Garden) of the Citadelle and the jardins d’eau (watergardens) of Chemetoff (1996) all merit visits.

The Ecole de Nancy (School of Nancy) will delight you. Plant life adorns the decorative elements which ornate the facades and twisted balconies. The architecture evokes calyx, stems and roots. There is furniture sculpted into water-lilies and lamps in the shape of mushrooms, plant life really is everywhere!

At the Ecole de Nancy Museum, the works of Emile Gallé, master glass worker and founder of the Ecole de Nancy, are exceptionally beautiful, the technique requiring a perfect scientific rigour. At the Fine Arts Museum (musée des beaux arts), the Daum Collection is a major draw-card, with artworks from the Ecole de Nancy, renowned worldwide and inspired by the botanic.

The Nancy Horticultural Society are heirs to the science and research obtained during the 19th century from experts such as Victor Lemoine, who was always extremely active.

Nancy is truly a destination for all garden lovers and green thumbs!
