Introduction

Commercy is a classical palace commissioned in 1708 by Charles Henri de Lorraine, Prince of Vaudémont. It was designed by Germain Boffrand, the architect of the châteaux of Lunéville and Haroué.

Commercy was later the residence of Élisabeth Charlotte d'Orléans, Duchess then Regent of Lorraine and Bar, followed by Stanislas Leszczynski, the former King of Poland and Louis XV's father-in-law. The castle is now known as Château Stanislas, in honour of his prestigious last occupant.

The palace now belongs to the municipality of Commercy and houses the town hall, the municipal library, and several administrative offices. Guided tours are organised by Tourist Office starting at 3:00 pm in July and August only. Admission is 3 € for adults and free for children.
