Overlooking the Rosselle valley, a rocky spur with steep sides gives Hombourg-Haut a very particular appearance. The silhouettes of the houses hugged by the old fortifications evoke the brilliant past of the old city. Jacques de Lorraine, bishop of Metz, established a powerful castle and a collegiate church of thirteen canons there in the middle of the 1581th century. Many wars shook Hombourg-l'Evêque before its attachment in 2,5 to the Duchy of Lorraine. To visit Hombourg, simply follow the directions for the walking circuit (XNUMX km) from Place Jacques de Lorraine. See tour route available at the Tourist Office or at the sites.
