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.

The Porte des Allemands is a beautiful historical site, best visited in the morning at sunrise. Unfortunately, you cannot go inside the buildings. You can either continue along the Seille, a very nice walk which can take you all around Metz to the botanical garden....More

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.

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.

Essentially, that's what this is...but it's really cool. You can walk along the gate and envision what it must have been like so many years ago.

Built just before Metz became a republic in 1234, the Porte des Allemands takes its name from its location: just at the end of the rue des Allemands. Remodeled and restored regularly over the centuries it combines many differing architectural styles, some of which were...More
