In 2024, tourism rhymes with Olympism

Sport is in the spotlight this year, culminating in the passage of the Flame through our region. To mark the occasion, the experts at Pays Thionvillois Tourisme intend to prove to you that culture and sport can go hand in hand.

The origin of the Sacred Flame

France has been waiting a century for the Olympic Games to return to its shores, and Moselle has been hoping for the light of the Olympic flame to shine through it for 76 years. Zoom in on the origins of one of sport’s greatest symbols.

The Olympic flame is without doubt one of the most famous symbols associated with the Olympic Games. But do you know the origins of this tradition?
