  • 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.

  • Nice place to learn a little bit about the history of Metz. The fortress is pretty well conserved and seeing it lets you know how the city used to be. Definitely worth it. And free😉
  • Nice bridge fortification to visit and climb through. It's interesting, and there's a nice little park outside it, as well. It only really takes a half hour to see everything here, though - it's not a destination type of attraction. Still, if you visit Metz, you should make a point to visit.
