Nestled in the very heart of the Lorraine region, the charming city of Metz, with its impressive Centre Pompidou, is a magnet for art lovers.
But not only the sister institution of the Paris-based contemporary art museum attracts visitors. Metz is also home to the Cour d'Or Museum with its extensive architectural collection, as well as numerous parks and gardens and gorgeous historical churches. Those who prefer their art on stage won't want to miss the Opéra-Théâtre, France's oldest still-functioning opera house.
Shopaholics will find plenty to keep them busy on rue Serpenoise and rue des Clercs as well as in the Imperial quarter and the Amphitheatre quarter by the railway station. The picturesque Outre-Seille quarter is home to lovely arts and crafts and antiques businesses.
