Location: Amneville les Bains, France

MapToday we headed back into France to visit the Lorraine region around Verdun, location of many battles and memorials of the world wars. On the way, we took a short detour to the city of Saarbrucken in Germany just across the Saar River and spent some time in a swimming pool there. When we arrived at Amneville (les Bains), we discovered that it is a resort in a wooded area with many hotels, restaurants, swimming pools fed by a natural hot spring, luxury spa, movie theatres, I-max theatre, casino, even an indoor ski hill. We went for a walk around the area and had dinner. There are crowds of people here and we noticed many tour busses in the parking area.
