This building is incredible, it dwarfs the small town of Metz and is a visible display of the wealth of the Catholic Church. We couldn’t help wondering at the cost to the ‘ordinary people’ in it’s 500 year history. Stunning stain glass windows and catholic...More

This is a landmark and beautiful cathedral with history in Metz. It is definitely worth to check it out and its surroundings. The cathedral is even more special and amazing during the Metz Constellations event that happen from July-September.

They call it "God's Lantern" because of the magnificent stained glass; it is breath-taking. Don't miss the window by Marc Chagall. Linger to worship or just admire the skill that went into building it. Be prepared for the reality that didn't dawn upon me until...More

They began construction on this cathedral in the 1200's and as an American, it always blows my mind at how old these churches are. It was truly beautiful.

It’s not just the cathedral, it’s the area around it as well. Metz is a lovely town and the cathedral is amazing. It’s easy to believe it’s one of the tallest in the country, and the glass is beautiful. Make it a must see.

A must to visit and to take time to be there, best outside the time of touristic visitors. Sit down and to relax to hear the organ playing and to explore the fantastic windows of the cathedral.

Thank zugch

I also had a dog with me but had to leave her outside, so I took her back to the car before visiting.
