• What you should know about Reims

    We have several visitors who regularly come here and who live abroad. I thought it would be kind to introduce our city to them. Some of my pupils have written short articles to that purpose.

    "In Reims there are a lot of shops in the city centre and many restaurants and bars. Next to the city centre there is the cathedral and a big park. In the city there are a lot of schools and public transports to move around the city."

    Jayde and Lise.

    "Reims is a city with a lot of monuments like the cathedral which was partly destroyed during WW1. There are a lot of shops too in the town centre and a beautiful stadium. In the Montagne de Reims there are a lot of vineyards and villages which make Champagne in cellars."


    "Reims has a beautiful cathedral which is situated in the centre. There are a lot of old "Art-Déco" houses and champagne cellars. There is the canal which crosses the city. Recently the tramway arrived for a better traffic. There are many clothes shops. The football club is in the First League."

    Julien and Florent.

    "Reims is a big city where 200,000 inhabitants live. Reims is a city where there are a lot of schools and universities to study. There many visitors who come to Reims to visit the cathedral and its historical city centre. The city was bombed during WW1 and the cathedral burnt. Reims is famous in the world for Champagne and other specialties. There are may parks where events are sometimes organised. There are a lot of shops in the city centre."

    Claire and Chloé.

    "Reims is situated in the Marne department and Champagne-Ardenne region. With 184,984 inhabitants, it is the eleventh town in France. Rheims (English spelling) is a big and famous city where you can find shops, arks, schools, bublic transports, museums and above all the cathedral.

    A lot of kings were crowned in the cathedral.

    You can go to sports halls as well  and play music in a big Academy (the Conservatoire) as well.

    In Rheims there's Champagne, pink biscuits and the stadium is beautiful."

    Elena, Loubna and Seda.

    These introductions and photographs remind me of the week I spent in Reims in 1999.  The total eclipse, and a jazz concert in the cathedral square, plus drinks in a café on the main street.  It's been too long!
