We made a completely spontaneous trip to Metz one weekend because we saw there was cheap train fare and we had never been there before. We loved our time here and it was a wonderful city just to walk around in. The Porte des Allemands is a great example of free, picturesque spots throughout Metz. We didn't have an itinerary at all and managed to find a great hotel and wonderful food by just walking around. Great weekend trip for a couple of nights.

I can't exactly explain why I liked this site as much as I did. Since Metz was an enormous fortress-city, it was like that last piece of the puzzle for my imagination to envision the city during Mideval times.

If you visit the Porte des Allemands, make sure you walk north and go on top of the ramparts. From here you can follow a path that traces the outer wall and see some of the destruction from some of the many wars in Metz. It's also extremely quite and peaceful on the trail.

Not a castle, but rather an ancient entry way into the city. Nice to see. On the edge of town so walking there is a little far, but no bad at all. Combine it with a stroll to the Saint Maximin church to see the Jean Cocteau designed stained-glass window.

This was a charming little castle and well worth the visit. My brother and I visited in January and it was a free admission (not sure if it's that way year round). It's not a large castle by any stretch, but it's certainly a fun, scenic visit-- and a great way to cross back into town if you detoured out to the lovely Bellecroix gardens

In just one day, doing all what we've done was hard, but really appagant. Entering here is like to be back in the MiddleAges, you can see the river from the above and... it's free!!!

Anywhere you reach into Alsace and Lorraine ,boarder of Germany or Switzerland, there is an important port ,very similar in these lands and used for protection against invaders and reiders from old times .Located in the town centre ,the German Gate is a small , independent fortified castle, and an icon of the city of Metz .Porte des Allemands is named after the Teutonic Knights, hospitaller brothers of Notre Dame des Allemands, who founded a hospital nearby in the 13th century. It is the largest surviving building on the medieval ramparts and served both as a double door and a bridge over the river Seille.Very atmospheric place for visit and it borders a lovely path walk.A fantastic place to rummage into nature and history .

This whole area is such a beautiful place to go for a long relaxing stroll while also learning some history. As well as the beautiful old buildings you'll also see a lot of native plants and birds.

Not far from the train station, this spot is great to visit. Reminisce history and enjoy the architecture and the old way of doing things.
