Time of year
This station is definitely one of the best classic train station I have visited. The design is so beautiful from outside especially in the evening. Do not forget to take your picture when you are there!
Amazing building worth 5 minutes of your time. Very close to Pombidou and Muse shopping center. Many small restaurants and brasseries around.
Very nice architecture, this station is one of the nicest in France or in Lorraine; nice sculptures and a Germanic style; the station is near the nice Pompidou Museum.
An old train station builded is German style. Near of the center, one of the beautifulest in France.
The beautiful and imposing train station is enough reason to visit Metz, but venture beyond and you will be well rewarded. The station inside is full of interesting details as well.
