Metz : Michelin's recommendations
Metz has 3 000 years of history (Roman, medieval, classical, germanic) as the city’s architecture bears witness to. By night it illuminates its buildings: the cathedral of St Étienne with splendid stained glass; the station with rich bas-reliefs and capitals; and the Centre Pompidou-Metz, breaking every classical rule there is… Take time to stroll through the narrow streets in the centre, along the waterfront and through its many parks and squares.
