About Compiègne
Compiègne is a nice small city in northern France within the département of Oise in the Picardie Region. Located along the Oise river, it is situated about 75km far from Paris. Since the origins of monarchy, Compiègne has been a royal and imperial residence. The chateau was the autumn residence of Emperor Napoleon III. The Compiègne forest, one of the most famous and largest forest in France, is the place where armistices for both World Wars were signed.

Workshop Location
