From wikipedia:

Champagne-Ardenne (French pronunciation: ​[ʃɑ̃paɲaʁdɛn]) is a former administrative region of France, located in the northeast of the country, bordering Belgium. Mostly corresponding to the historic province of Champagne, the region is known for its sparkling white wine of the same name.

The administrative region was formed in 1956, consisting of the four departments Aube, Ardennes, Haute-Marne, and Marne. On 1 January 2016, it merged with the neighboring regions of Alsace and Lorraine to form the new region Grand Est, thereby ceasing to exist as an independent entity.

Its rivers, most of which flow west, include the Seine, the Marne, and the Aisne. The Meuse flows north.



  • A4 connecting Paris and Strasbourg and serving the Reims metropolitan area
  • A5 connecting Paris and Dijon and serving Troyes and Chaumont
  • A26 connecting Calais and Troyes and serving Reims and Châlons-en-Champagne
  • A34 connecting Reims and the Belgian border and serving Charleville-Mézières


The rail network includes the Paris–Strasbourg line, which follows the Marne Valley and serves Épernay, Châlons-en-Champagne, and Vitry-le-François. The LGV Est TGV line also connecting Paris and Strasbourg opened in 2007 and serves Reims with a train station in the commune of Bezannes.


The region's canals include the Canal latéral à la Marne and Marne-Rhine Canal, the latter connecting to the Marne at Vitry-le-François. These are petit gabarit canals.
