The restaurant - Capitainerie and the Port in Épinal

Located a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, the Port in Épinal remains one of the most appreciated places by the inhabitants of Épinal (called Spinaliens) who go to the Port as soon as the sun appears. A wide range of activities are offered in this setting surrounded by nature.

The park, with its many green spaces, is located between the Moselle River and the Canal des Vosges. Many facilities are available to make your day enjoyable such as games for children, tables, barbecues and many multi-use trails.

Throughout the year, the Port hosts many pleasure boats, with its 32 mooring points with self-service water and electricity points. At the restaurant the Capitainerie, which building resembles that of a ship, you can eat and why not finish your day by renting your own electric boat for a small cruise along the canal. The establishment also manages the area reserved for camping cars, which has 5 places. They can have access to water and electricity for a maximum of 48 hours.


Beside the Capitainerie you will find the Bike House with its wooden architecture which services to remind you that being in Épinal is also the luxury of being less than 5 minutes on bike from the forest. You can rent all types of bikes, with or without electric assistance for an urban ride in Épinal or to one of the many trails from the Port such as the 73-kilometre multi-use trail.
