From 1 April onwards, inhabitants of Nancy and the Greater Region can discover the tastefully renovated historical thermal baths of Nancy Thermal, which is reopening its doors.

Nancy was home to the very first 50-metre indoor pool in France since 1913. It also has a famous round pool, designed by the architect Louis Lanternier.

In 2018, the Academy of Medicine suggested exploiting the source of natural mineral water for therapeutic purposes. Fast-forward five years, and the baths are open to visitors, to the great pride of the mayor Mathieu Klein: "We have completed a project born at the beginning of the 20th century which had to stop in 1913 and which could not resume due to the First World War. So it is also a great historical moment."

With its 20,000 m², its spaces dedicated to relaxation, sport and well-being, Nancy thus becomes the first French spa town.

The thermal centre is located in the heart of the city. Wellbeing centres and water sports are often in mountain areas or outside of city centres, explains Klein: "We are at the heart city ​​center next to the Sainte-Marie park, in the Art Nouveau district. So there is also a real cultural offer that is very significant to the city's history. So I really believe that this is an important moment for the history of our city."

The reopening takes place in several phases.

  • On 1 April, doors open to the Aquasport area, an area spanning 2,500 m² and supplied with thermal water.

  • On 15 April, the Thermal Spa within the historic round swimming pool is accessible.

  • On 15 May, the health area opens to spa guests, focusing on the treatment of rheumatism.
