    The Grand Est Region: cross-border by nature

    With over 750 kilometres of borders running from Belgium to Switzerland via Luxembourg and Germany, and a long history of a wealth of close relations with these four countries, the Grand Est Region is geographically, historically, economically and strategically a naturally cross-border gateway to Europe, a situation that it is proud to assert and accepts as one of its major challenges.

    The number 1 border region in France, the Grand Est’s heart beats in the centre of Europe. Not only is Strasbourg, the regional capital, one of the 3 capitals of Europe, but the Grand Est is also at the crossroads of some of the most dynamic areas in Europe – From Benelux to Germany, not to mention Switzerland and beyond to Central and Eastern Europe.
