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.

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...More

So much wonderful detail in this building, apart from it's magnificent overall appearance. The carved capitals alone (one attached) are worth a long wander, pretending you're in a top museum. A great monument to a tricky period
