Small and cozy town

Small and cozy town, easy to walk around, some really nice architectural sites. A nice place for a day trip. I was staying in Louxembourg, but visited Metz as a day trip.

Arrived by train into Metz on one of our visits last year and revisited the station this time. A great old style railway station that takes you back to a grander age of rail travel. Great way to arrive into Metz

When Lorraine was annexed by the Germans in 1870 they didn't waste much time building a railway station.

The building itself is architecturally interesting and large for a regional town. We accessed the ticket counter and found the staff to be very helpful and while not all of them speak good English, they will direct you to a counter where a staff member does.

The Gare de Metz Ville is a wonderful sight for a railway station . It's elaborate facade resembles a Cathedral its that Imoressive . Turrets and towers, arched windows, stained glass - it has it all . Coupled with stone soldiers at each corner and a fabulous clock tower . Well worth a visit .
