The Ludres industrial park, known as ‘Dynapôle’, is home to 350 businesses employing 8,000 people. This makes it Lorraine’s largest industrial site by number of businesses. During their leisure time, people flock from all over Greater Nancy to the recent concert hall and large cinema complex at Espace Chandeau. But in the 5th century BC, Ludres was the site of Eastern France’s largest Leuci stronghold. In the old part of the village, Saint-Epvre’s church (16th to 18th century) contains the Ludre family vault, and the 13,500 sqm Saint-Thèrese Park can be accessed at any time. Close by stands a large cattle wash place.

There are numerous paths within the village, in particular on the Ludres plateau in the southern part of Haye Forest, where you will have a chance of spotting some of the numerous birds and large fauna that live there (hares, foxes, roe deer and wild boar).
