Station

Interesting
The impressive Metz railway station was built by the Germans in 1904-08 during the annexation of Moselle and with war against France on their mind. It was intended to be able to transfer more than 20,000 troops in under 24hr. Topped by the 40m/140ft clock tower, the imposing 300m/950ft-long building is richly decorated with sculptures, capitals, bas-reliefs and stained-glass windows. A majestic gateway to the pretty city of Metz.
