  • Not only do you get an excellent view of the city, or part of it, you can imagine what the remaining fortifications looked like, especially if you watch the short film they have on the ground floor...

  • A well preserved gatehouse of the original medieval city of Metz, well worth including a stroll along the remaining section of city wall that runs alongside the river, if the weather is nice.

  • Very beautiful historic place, free entrance and nice atmosphere. If you are a photographer this is a lovely place for nice architecture and landscape view. You can find descriptions in French or German. The towel is raised on natural rocks and very clean. Beautiful experience if you visit metz make sure to be in this beautiful spot.
  • I've always loved this landmark. I lived in Metz 2010-2011 while teaching English, and I remember my cab driver took me by here on the first day in town. I knew I had to go back. If you're a history fan like me, there's a bit here to look at. I confess I haven't actually been inside it, as that wasn't available in 2011 and we didn't have time this time around in 2022, but it looked like they had some fascinating stuff inside and they do guided tours on Wednesdays (I believe... maybe it was Tuesdays). There's not a lot to *do* but there's a lot to look at for history fans.
