If you are in Metz you really can't miss this. It's everywhere. All picturesque even on an overcast/drizzly day in November when we were here. I imagine this is quite beautiful in the summertime.

For a lovely walk through Metz, follow the canal. It is a nice walk for both day and night and the canal is lit up in the evening, which makes it all the better.

We walked along the canal in the late afternoon/early evening and it was quite lovely. We had beautiful views of the town.

Just one block from the cathedral. Several bridges link the old section of town to the Place de la Comédie. Nice to spend some time under the trees on a hot day.

Just two blocks down the street from the famous cathedral you should not miss it. The view is great and romantic.

If you come and see the old town and cathedrale you might not walk down the short blocks to the river, and it would be a shame. The buildings are especially pretty at night, in winter they can go monochromatic during the day.

We enjoyed seeing the Moselle in Metz. There are several places to cross; it was nice to spend a few minutes on two of the bridges. Nice views.

This is a beautiful place to walk and see the swans and people out and about. There are beautiful apartments and gardens along the way, and I saw kayakers and other boaters.

There are bike paths along the canal that are wonderful for a sunset ride. Quiet, serene, and not too much traffic.
