Residence of the Counts of Champagne

At the heart of Reims, and almost totally destroyed over the course of the first World War, the Residence of the Counts of Champagne is one of the rare vestiges of medieval architecture of the city and the testament to the dynasty that reigned over the Champagne region. It served as the reception hall of the Counts of Champagne during the royal coronations that took place in the neighboring cathedral. Today, restored and owned by Champagne Taittinger, the Residence hosts receptions, exhibits and concerts.
