Nature and winter sports resort

Lac de Gérardmer is the largest natural lake in the Vosges mountains. Gérardmer, the Pearl of the Vosges, is a listed tourist resort nestled between lakes, forests and mountains, in the heart of the Vallée des Lacs. A dynamic, festive town, Gérardmer has long been a beacon of tourism in Lorraine. A city full of charm, it has everything to seduce nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike, whatever the season.

In winter, Gérardmer becomes a pleasant winter sports resort with cross-country and downhill ski trails, a casino, swimming pool, cinema, toy library and ice rink. Fans of fantasy films gather here every year in late January/early February for the International Fantastic Film Festival. A large flower parade takes place every 2 years in mid-April to delight the eyes.
