Metz,
the contemporary

Metz, a garden town by nature, delightfully combines greenery and urban tourism.
Between the Seille and Moselle rivers, from the squares to the alleyways, the architecture is a journey through time. Saint-Etienne is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in France. Just a short walk away is the Centre Pompidou-Metz, a stunning vessel carrying contemporary art and strong emotions. With shopping, events and the joys of discovery, Metz is a true getaway destination and is listed as a Town of Art and History.
