The River Meuse runs through Verdun forming several canals throughout the valley, surrounded by hills with historical fortresses, battlefields, and underground barracks, as well as a healthy beer brewing culture.
Change things up with these side-trips from Verdun: Amneville (Patinoire Municipal, Zoo d'Amnéville, & more), Hautvillers (Champagne Joseph Desruets & Abbaye Saint-Pierre d'Hautvillers) and Epernay (Le Chocolat d'Emmanuel Briet, Moet et Chandon Champagne Cellars, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Fort Douaumont, take an in-depth tour of Le Memorial de Verdun, learn about all things military at Citadelle Souterraine de Verdun, and take a peaceful walk through Foret Domaniale de Verzy.

For reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Verdun trip planner .
