Spa town in France
Enghien-les-Bains is a commune in the northern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 13.5 kilometres (8.4 mi) from the centre of Paris, in the département of Val-d'Oise.
Enghien-les-Bains is famous as a spa resort and a well-to-do suburb of Paris, developed in the nineteenth century around the scenic lake of Enghien. A casino, the only one in the vicinity of Paris, is located on the shores of the lake.
Built around its lake, Enghien-les-Bains, a spa resort in the Île-de-France region and a UNESCO Creative City for Media Arts, cultivates its eclecticism merging its heritage in a contemporary way.
With its exceptional accommodation capacity, a few minutes away from the centre of Paris and international airports, Enghien-les-Bains is committed to the Creative Cities Network which is generating cities of the future and their intercultural links.
Through media arts, an educational tool providing access to science, it is taking part in the global discussion on smart, responsive cities. The smallest city in this network in terms of its size contributes to sustainable development and its past achievements which permit reflection.
Building on this heritage, we would invite you in 2017 at the 11th Annual Meeting of the network, to the discovery of the sustainable media arts city, increased by the knowledge of dynamic and innovative societies that are the cities of the network. This meeting will be a unique opportunity, with your close collaboration, to celebrate the transversality between clusters and to promote the network to the outside.
