We arrived at this terminal on Bastille day. The building seemed out of place. It was later on that I realised that it was built by the Germans when they still owned this province. There was an explosion by the entrance but everyone went by their business. A cherry bomb! Like everything French, the trains were 40 minutes late! Boy... More

More like a gothic castle than a station, this is one impressive building, all medieval knights and dragons. Worth seeing in the daytime and also when lit up at night. The restaurant Le Grand Comptoir is in part of the station building and is well worth a visit. There is also a very beautiful bookshop at the rear of the... More

I had to catch a connecting train for Paris. It was my first station and city in France. I found people and information helpful. Unlike the perception, everybody spoke in English to me.

I loved the mix of massiveness and the Arabic touches of the arches, the information office has to be one of most exclusive offices in the world!

This is a beautiful neoclassicistic building that was designed by German architects after the Francoprussian war according to a well informed taxi driver. The station features an impressive water tower (probably built to refill the steam locomotives). I personally enjoyed the well stocked bookshop there to buy lots of French books.

1. No luggage storage at the train station 2. I'd take the train to Metz just to see this station. Not sure it is worth it to drive or walk to, but if you are coming here via train, take a moment to stop and enjoy the architecture. 3. credit goes to Metz guide book: The station building is architecturally...

On the edge of the German quarter of Metz, the appearance was unfortunately spoilt by on going renovation works on the forecourt, but it should look good when finished. A very large practical solid building but never the less impressive. Inside it has been modernised and does not have the cathedral type magic of say ' Antwerp Station ' but... More
