closed for refurbishment. Reopening planned in 2023
Built in the 13C, the Ducal Palace was rebuilt after the victory of René II over Charles the Bold. Its austere façade, now cleaned and restored, is adorned by a superb, elegant doorway built in the 16C by Duke Antoine. This remarkable door crowned by an equestrian statue of Duke Antoine of Lorraine is a mix of Flamboyant Gothic and Renaissance styles. The palace is now home to the Musée Historique Lorrain.
