The walk in to the building is grand and beautiful, and the station is large, clean and well-serviced. Our French is not good, and we had a complex request to get from Metz to two different places in Germany, one without a railway station so a bus was needed as well. The people in information were gorgeous - with pictures,... More

This is worth a visit, especially from a historic point of view. From 1870-1918 this part of France was german and you will find several pictures in the ancient station, which direct to this period. Intersting for a short visit.

An enormous building with an unusual design showing its Germanic architecture in an area with lots of Jugendstil houses.

Hard to grasp the scale of this magnificent building. Resembling more a museum than a railway station it's anything but humble, worth the walk even if you're not catching a train!

Well worth a photograph from outside. Needs a careful look around the interior to find all its interesting bits and pieces. A pleasure to wander round. The old has been tastefully combined with the new. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, well it was the twice we were there, morning and evening.

This is one of the most beautiful train stations in Europe, kept mostly to its classical architecture. Worth visiting the interior and the platforms, if this isn't the way you get to Metz in the first place!

A very interesting history, which explains why it has a military solid look. It could house up to 25 000 soldiers during the day with amunition as an important military transport knot.

This grand stone structure dominates the gare-center area with its stately clock tower. The building is a work of art. We ventured inside but sad to say the best part of the station is its exterior. Impressive structure!!!
