Meuse (French pronunciation: [møz]) is a department in northeast France, named after the River Meuse. Meuse is part of the current region of Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine and is surrounded by the French departments of Ardennes, Marne, Haute-Marne, Vosges, Meurthe-et-Moselle, and has a short border with Belgium on the north. Parts of Meuse belong to Parc naturel régional de Lorraine.
