Its green landscapes, architecture and cultural life make it a top holiday destination. Because it can be easily travelled around on foot, it invites a change of scenery and amazement.The elegant homes that line the lake are testament to a wealth of varied architectural heritage built between 1850 and now. Haussmann, Art Deco, Art Nouveau and classical architecture all integrate harmoniously. Concerned about preserving this exceptional heritage, the town established an Architectural, Urban and Rural Heritage Protection Area.

The town’s Agenda 21 drafted with the inhabitants in 2009 was recognized by the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy. In line with the ve axis of the National Strategy for Sustainable Development, the 18 commitments have been developed into 5 actions whose 86% have been realized. These initiatives concretely contribute to the national and global goals to protect the environment in all its aspects, the strengthening of governance for greater social inclusion and the sustainable economic development of the territory. The town has also made a commitment to its young people with the Agenda 21 Junior, an Enghien-les-Bains initiative .
