Ludres is a commune in the Meurthe-et-Moselle département in north-eastern France.

The inhabitants are called Ludréens. In the past, inhabitants of Ludres were known by their neighbours as rôtisseurs ("roast meat sellers"), having once turned out en masse to watch their adulterous priest burned at the stake.[2]
