Aéropôle Grand Nancy Tomblaine, a city centre airport !

The airport is effectively only 5 minutes from the centre of Nancy, great city of the Grand Est region, at the heart of  Lorraine.
Lorraine has a rich and varied heritage with its natural parks, museums, historic monuments, applied arts and gastronomy. Nancy is the administrative centre of this beautiful wooded region featuring both plains and highlands, and crossed by the rivers Moselle, Meuse and Meurthe.
 
Nancy has succeeded in making the most of its geographical situation (traversed by major European routes) and history to attract artistic and industrial skills. Today Nancy balances Art Nouveau (Nancy School) style districts with Unesco World Heritage sites such as the famous Place Stanislas.
Its old city combines medieval and renaissance styles.
The “Beauty of the East” stands out for its diversity, modernity, history and little districts of contrasting appearance that give the impression of real villages within the city. It will intrigue you and offers you the possibility of discovering it via its many museums (Musée Lorrain, Musée des Beaux Arts, Musée de l’Ecole de Nancy, Muséum Aquarium, Musée de l’Histoire du Fer (railway history museum), among others). 
 
In a verdant and wooded region, Nancy has protected nature with its impressive number of parks, not to mention its fabulous Botanical Gardens.
So just a few minutes from the airport you will find Nancy, a city that is simultaneously full of history, flower-bedecked and relaxing, moving with the times.
Indeed, Nancy proves to be a very modern, vibrant city with its numerous show venues (Zénith, Opéra National de Lorraine, Théâtre de la Manufacture, L’Autre Canal, Ensemble Poirel, etc.), its many flagship events (Le Livre sur la Place, Nancy Jazz Pulsations, the ephemeral garden on Place Stanislas, Saint Nicolas, the summer son et lumière “Rendez-vous Place Stan”, etc.) and its wide-ranging sporting facilities (high level sports clubs, Nancy-Brabois Hippodrome, Nancy-Pulnoy Golf course, the SLUC, the ASNL, Marcel Picot Stadium just a stone’s throw from the airport, etc.)
