Not far from the train station, this spot is great to visit. Reminisce history and enjoy the architecture and the old way of doing things.

Worth a look if you are in this part of town. There is not a lot to see. There is access to pleasant walking trails along the river and old city walls.

City gate and fortified bridge built in the 13th and 15th centuries. Pretty cool piece of history that makes for a lovely little afternoon stroll.

This gate together with the city walls was the place I liked most in Metz. We spent a long time here, taking pictures, searching for the best view, excited like kids. I only missed information in English or German.

We went to visit Marche Couvert, and when we finished we walked down to visit Porte des Allemands (Germans' Gate). The walk to the gate was well worth the walk, and I would recommend it to anyone in the area. It is the last remaining...More

Loved this place. The history is so amazing for this piece of history. You can walk around the roof and imagine how it must have been. There is a small historical center that you can walk around. It also has a very clean bathroom.
