Buildings in Metz from the German period (1871-1914) can be told apart from the older rest by the stone that had been used. While most of old Metz is constructed with the warm 'Pierre de Soleil'. a yellow limestone from Jaumont in Lorraine, in the Imperial Wilhelmine period of the Germans a colder grey sandstone from Neuwiller at the feet of the Vosges was the preference. This is the case with the Gare, the railway station, with much of the Imperial Quarter and also with the 'Temple Neuf' (Neue Evangelische Kirche'.

With Metz part of the new 'Reichsland Elsass-Lothringen' many immigrants from Germany came here, most of them from the protestant confession, so a new church had to be built for them. The small island 'du Petit-Sancy' in the Moselle river was chosen for this edifice. The 'Temple', as in French protestant churches are usually called, was inaugurated in 1904 in the presence of the German Emperor. Its style is the Romanesque Revival, very popular in Germany as of the end of the 19th century, and thus matching the 'Gare de Metz'.

We visited Metz in May 2019 when we researching our upcoming book "Flavour with Benefits: France".

The Temple Neuf has such a beautiful presence as it is situated on the tip of an island surrounded by the Moselle. Go see the Temple and the main Cathedral and the Covered Market. There is lots to do!

Seen outside in the night walking around this lovely city, it's a marvellous show for the eyes, allocated between Canàl de la Mosèlle & a lovely square with gardens & art.

Not much to see except of course the building and its beautiful decorations.
It is nice if you like to walk to take this in your route because the church is on an island and it is nice to walk around. We were there on Easter 2018 and it was very quiet walking. Not many people.

Sitting right on the river this was very pretty. We didn't go inside but admired it from a few different angles outside.
There is a large parking garage right near here that was clean with plenty of parking spots. Elevator or stairs right up to the top.
We parked here and it was only a few blocks to the Christmas markets.

This church with German history lies in a nice area. You can walk round it and take lots of beautiful pictures, but it’s only open for concerts or exhibitions. Read about its history to find out why the people of Metz are not interested in this place.

You can only walk around it, this church is not open for public. That's a bit of a pity. Nicely situated near the river Mosselle

Temple Neuf is a really beautiful neo-Romanesque German Protestant church on Petit Salcy Island, a short walk from St. Steven's Cathedral. The photos we took here were some of the best of our trip. Also on the island is Place de la Comedie, with an amazing garden/fountain, also lovely for taking photos. I highly recommend making time for a walk in this direction while visiting Metz.
