  • Cool structure and worth a visit if you are in Metz, sometimes you can go inside but nothing special thee really, just as easily enjoyed from the outside and while you are there you can take some time and walk by the river there. It's a nice walk.

  • Fortified and practical for back then in the Middle Age...

  • Really nice building, there was an electronic party or something over there that wasn't nice tho

  • Really nice building, free entry to most of it, too.

  • Beautiful site of european hystory.
