Contz-les-Bains, perched on the slopes of the Stromberg, is known for its vineyard, which became AOC certified in 2010 and its centenarian old organ. Every year for the festivities of Saint Jean, a flaming wheel descent takes place at the Stromberg. Contz has been called Contz-les-Bains since 1936, due to the thermal establishment in Sierck-les-Bains and the existence of thermal springs in Contz. The most famous spring is the Saint Jerome spring. The therapeutic properties were similar to those found in Mondorf-les-Bains in Luxembourg.
