Metz, where art goes with history
Metz is a North-eastern city of France, in the Lorraine region. Birthplace of the Caroligian’s dynasty, Metz has a 3.000 years story and kept a part of this great cultural heritage. It is a more than 120 000 inhabitants city.
Metz has the "Ville d’art et d’histoire" label (City of Art and History),so you will have a lot to see during your trip. You can book a tour at the Tourism Office to visit the city walking with a guide or an audio-guide, or explore it by mini-train or boat. Go to the museum "Metz métrople La cour d’or" where you will see the gallo roman, medieval and Fine arts collections. Do not miss the Centre Pompidou-Metz, and wow in front of its contemporary architecture. Of course, visit the huge and impressive gothic St Etienne cathedral, housing the largest stained glass windows collection of Europe (about 6.500 m²).
Trains are a convenient way of reaching many towns and cities throughout Europe. The majority of cities in Europe have a minimum of one train station, while larger, more populated cities have two or more stations. Train stations, in general, are located in the heart of the city. Review the map below to get an idea of where the train station(s) in Metz can be found.

I booked my onward rail trips to Luxembourg and Frankfurt through RailEurope, with the option to print the tickets at home. However, when I booked this particular trip, the ONLY option I was given was ticket delivery to my home address! Imagine my horror, as I had only booked it four days before the trip, and I live ten of thousands of miles from France where the tickets were meant to be issued! I panicked, but still proceeded with the purchase. What I didn't know was, RailEurope has a regional representative in Singapore near where I live! Fair enough, I got my tickets two days before I traveled to France! I was overjoyed! The train trip itself was problem-free, and it departed on schedule. I have always had faith in the European rail system, and this has been fortified many folds when RailEurope handled my purchases with no trouble at all! Will I buy rail tickets through RailEurope again in future? Of course I will! In fact, I will encourage others to do it! Bravo, RailEurope!

Our journey was delayed several hours by industrial action but otherwise the joumey was comfortable and enjoyable.
- "No direct train to CDG Airport" Choi Ha l. 31/05/2014
There is no direct train from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport. We had to take the train from Reims to Paris East Station and walked for 10 minutes with luggage to Paris North Station. Taxi at such peak hours is not an option. It was raining and the streets were full of traffic and people. Finding the right counter to buy a ticket from Paris North Station to the airport is very testing. Having queued for half an hour, we were told that we needed to go to a counter at the corner of the big ticket hall. Why you cannot get all kinds of ticket from any ticket sale counter? There were no English signs on this. The train from Paris North Station to the airport was fully loaded with commuters. The particular train that we took stopped abruptly short of two stations. All passengers were told to leave the train and wait for the next train to the airport. We did not understand the French announcement but followed those surprised looking passengers to disembark. Again, we had to take our luggage and braced the rains to take shelter, and waited for another train to come. Why there was not a better way to go from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport? Or there was one but not shown up when we booked online? I would like to have some feedbacks so that we can be smarter travellers next time.
- "TGV to Metz from Paris" Michael d. 12/05/2014
Too many seats face opposite the train's direction of travel. Arrival in Paris in the rain left the passengers far from the covered section of the Gare de L'Est.
- "Metz Ville - Paris Est" Joan l. 13/01/2014
I'm not sure why the fare was so expensive. It costs almost the same amount as traveling from Paris to Frankfurt. Although Wifi is is indicated, the service was not operational on our trip. The journey itself was comfortable.
- "rerouting" Rami v. 02/01/2014
At the CDG airport I changed the route from CDG to Lorraine, a good decision though the extra price was quite too high.
- "TGV ***** small limitations" André b. 16/08/2013
timeliness: fantastic, parted and arrived on schedule minute comfort: 1 class seats train noise: not perceptible but noisy family next to us (regroup differently?) GSM's are a curse toilet was inundated
- "paris metz" Corinne s. 11/08/2013
everything ok just one suggestion for improvement...to be able to selct an option for the seat. I have trouble travelling on the opposite way of the road. I would love to be able to fslect a seat which faces the road thanks
- "Enjoyable trip" Graeme r. 03/06/2013
We drove from Nancy to Metz to catch this train. There were many road works around the city which made it difficult to find the station car rental return point. Anyway we got there finally. We had purchased 'print at station' tickets. I tried to retrieve them using a machine but it didn't work. I went to the only counter that was open and he was able to print them out for me. We boarded the train, a group were sitting in our seats but were happy to move for us. ( we had pre-allocated first class seats around a table). The train journey was very comfortable and enjoyable. Nobody came to check our tickets. We couldn't get any wifi which was disappointing.
