Living in Nancy

Bienvenue a Nancy, la capitale de ducs de Lorraine! If you haven’t visited Nancy before, you will probably be expecting an archetypal French city, perhaps with the odd cobbled street and ancient church. However, while the city has all of these things, it is above all else one of the most architecturally stunning cities in Europe – so much so that parts of the city, such as the Place Stanislas Square, have been named UNESCO World Heritage sites. If you are lucky enough to be an expatriate in Nancy, you will find something new to admire every day. From the intricate Art Noveau detailing on local buildings and vintage furniture; to the seasonal blooms at the Jardin Botanique du Montet, an extensive botanical garden.

Moving to Nancy

Nancy is situated in the East of France, close to the German and Luxembourg borders. While French is the language of the locals, smatterings of German, Dutch and English can be heard on most streets. Nevertheless, if you are an expat who is planning on moving to Nancy, it is highly advisable that you brush up on your French before you leave, as there are no guarantees that the locals will be able (or want!) to speak your native tongue. Having to learn a language quickly is an issue faced by most expatriates at one point or another, so if you are worried about picking up enough French in time, check out the InterNations discussion boards and forums for tips and advice from other expats on bluffing your way through the first few weeks. Or simply use our platform to connect with fellow global minds and expats living in Nancy or other parts of France to practice your French in conversation!

Working in Nancy

Nancy is a small city, and easy to get around. As parts of the city are under a UNESCO order, traffic is not allowed so you may find it quicker to walk or cycle to work, depending on how far you have to commute. If you are working in Nancy but living outside the city, a car is an absolute necessity – just remember to read up on French road rules, and stick to the right hand side of the road! Many expatriates work abroad in search of a better work/life balance, and Nancy offers this in spades. The city is surrounded by lush countryside dotted with chateaux and vineyards, making it a great place for couples and families alike. However, a move to and living in Nancy may represent a huge change of pace for you and your family, so before you go, speak to veteran expats with the help of InterNations, and get some advice on what to expect from your new life abroad.
