Metz - Lorraine's former capital is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mosel-Franconian region. Celts, Romans, Franks, and Prussians have left their footprints in the city on the Mosel in the course of its history. Once you arrive in Metz, a short city tour will take you through the city. As you leave, you will already be presented with an unforgettable sight: Saint-Etienne Cathedral is one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Explore the cathedral and the old town with its winding alleys, monasteries and medieval houses on your own and discover sights such as the medieval city gate "Porte des Allemands" or the Tempe Neuf on a Mosel island.
The different quarters of the city all have their own flair - from the "island quarter" at the mouth of the Seille into the Mosel to the "imperial quarter" around the old railway station, you will gather many great impressions. Art has a special significance in Metz. How about a visit to the Centre Pompidou-Metz or the oldest opera house in France? In addition to the sights, a variety of shopping opportunities await you, such as the Galerie Lafayette, as well as tranquil cafes and restaurants. In the late afternoon, we travel back after an eventful day.
