Trip Planner: Europe / France / Grand Est / Meurthe-et-Moselle / Luneville / Le Chateau de Luneville
Le Chateau de Luneville is an architectural masterpiece from the eighteenth century. It was built as "The Versailles of Lorraine" and was classified as a historical monument in 1901.
The chateau has a series of fire accidents associated with its history. From 1719 to 1961, a total of seven major fire accidents were reported here. The fire of January 2003 destroyed two-thirds of the princely apartments belonging to the Ministry of Defence. It also damaged the entire roof of the Royal Chapel’s southeast wing. However, Le Chateau de Luneville has since been restored.
Notice the symbolic carved designs of along the main staircase. The monogram of Duke Leopold appears on the ramp. You will marvel at the carved decorations of the Chapel, which gives great prominence to plaster. The heads of angels, garlands of flowers, and even the capitals of the columns are made of plaster molding. This same technique has been used during the recent restoration.
