Lille Metropolis

As European capital of Culture in 2004, Lille now takes its rightful place within the landscape of tourist destinations and European conferences.

The best season to come to the Lille Metropolis? All year round! Winter, springtime, summer, autumn, any season is the right season to visit the cultural sites, to be penetrated by the Flemish art of life, to sample the specialties or just to walk around and enjoy the joie de vivre that is living here.

At a time where the environment and changing climate issues are determining the decisions made by companies more and more, the Lille metropolis was awarded the green palm for the best carbon balance of Europe.

The choice made by Lille Metropolis allowed a reduction of the carbon footprint by an average of 15 to 40 % with respect to other cities such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, London or Paris.

With 115 approved hotels representing 7500 rooms, of which 4500 are accessible by foot from the "Palais des Congrès", the Lille metropolis takes on a leader role in this sector.

Another attractiveness factor: the true dynamism of the region, of its main economical networks and its five outstanding sites offering exceptional reception conditions for creative industries, textile industries, biology and health industry, ICT, eco-activities...

A metropolis in constant movement, where two installations will complete the metropolitan offer in 2012 :

  • The Lille Metropolis Grand Arena, one of the most beautiful of France and Europe,
  • The indoor Olympic VĂ©lodrome, a unique building in France to meet the vocation of cyclist in the city of Roubaix.

Organizer of international conferences, seminars, fairs, galas, and private manifestations: you'll always find a qualitative answer from our professionals.

In the Lille Metropolis, you'll surely live a unique human adventure, full of strong emotions. We wish you a warm welcome!
