Can Reims really be seen in a single day?

Visiting Reims for a day is a great way to get a taste of the Champagne culture and to explore the many sights and attractions that the city has to offer. While you're there, you'll have the opportunity to visit the Palace of Tau, the Museum of la Reddition, the Bute Saint-Nicaise park and the Champagne cellars.

Located in Reims, the Musee de la Reddition is a museum that commemorates the German surrender in World War II. This is a fascinating and educational place to see. The museum displays historical items such as uniforms, maps, artifacts and photos. It is open from 10am to 6pm on Wednesday through Monday.

The building where the German surrender took place has been converted to a museum. It was once a technical college and was the European headquarters of US General Dwight D. Eisenhower during the war.

The best part about the museum is the small cinema where visitors can watch a 19 minute film. The film is in French. The museum is filled with other interesting exhibits. There is also a room that shows the actual table where the terms of surrender were agreed upon. The room has been preserved through glass panels.
