Fleury (German: Flöringen) is a commune in the Moselle department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

Geography[edit]

The village is sited on a wooded plateau, high above the river Seille. The hilly topography gives rise to a range of microclimates and so agriculture surrounding the village is mixed, featuring arable crops and cattle rearing as well as vineyards.

History[edit]

Fleury was located within Saulnois, a region known as a source of salt over many centuries and under the control of the Three Bishoprics province.

Fleury was destroyed in 1352 by the army of the regent of Lorraine.
