Not only do you get an excellent view of the city, or part of it, you can imagine what the remaining fortifications looked like, especially if you watch the short film they have on the ground floor. Worth the visit.

A well preserved gatehouse of the original medieval city of Metz, well worth including a stroll along the remaining section of city wall that runs alongside the river, if the weather is nice.

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 .

It is free to enter and you can go onto the viewing platform where there are several information boards that are in English. This is part of the rampart circuits walk and, from what we have seen, the only bit where you can get an idea of the scale of the town defences. There was an exhibition in one of the ground floor rooms to

This was my most comfortable spot in Metz to come to sit and quietly read by the river that ran thru this medieval castle that they call a gate / porte. One side faces a busy road but go thru the castle and across the drawbridge and pass back thru time to a beautiful setting.
