Porte Des Allemands - Review

To the east of the city are the fortified city gates called The Doors of The Germans. It was used as a bridge from the 13th century to the 20th century. One of the greatest examples of medieval military architecture, these city gates make you wonder about the troubled times they were built in. The building is imposing and the bridge over the Seilleis an architectural wonder. Highlights include:

  • The 2 towers that are relatively new
  • The esplanade walk
  • The inner and the outer gate
  • The bridge
  • The river view

Porte Des Allemands, Metz Reviews

  • The display explaining the history of the monument is very good, the young woman at the desk was engaged and interesting. I found it fascinating to grasp how much this one 'porte' had changed over the centuries it was in use. A pleasant place to view the river and to learn how the Germans modified the course of the river from 1870

  • Beautiful old castellated entryway into old Metz which has undergone many changes over the centuries. Overlooks the Seille river. A must see for anyone visiting the city.

  • It's a beautiful old place to walk

  • Nothing amazing, but still cool bit of history.

  • Neat but not much to do.
