This church carries an eclectic architectural style. It is placed on a little Island on the Moselle which reminds you slightly of Ile de France. The massive building radiates power. Unfortunately, we couldn't visit it from inside. In the evening, the church is well lighted but its surrounding, the bridge and the waterfront are not and it's a pity because... More

Great pictures to make and a nice walk to do. My favorite place in Metz. Close to the city center and the cathedral, the night view is great, also the summer when everything is in bloom

Wanted to go inside here but it was closed so we didn't get to see inside which was disappointing but views by the side of it made it worth the walk

Just a shame the temple is not opened for visits. Look amazing from the outside with the river on both side of the garden. Absolutely lovely.

I can't speak for the inside of Le Temple Neuf, but the view of the church from Moyen Pont is so beautiful. The church sits on a small island in the middle of the river with bridges either side. When we were there, there were more swans on the river than I had ever seen in one place.

Thanks to it's location this church dominates the riverside almost as much as the Notre Dame in Paris, sadly it's not open for visit. Best photo moment is in the late afternoon.

After a stroll from the Lac des cignes along the riverside, we ended up with a beautiful view on the Temple Neuf church. It is a very pretty church, situated on a little island, with a bridge connecting it to 'mainland' Metz on either side. Very nice photo spot on a stroll around Metz.
