Masterpiece by the Berlin architect Kröger, the Neo-Roman style station was built between 1905 and 1908. By the wealth of its décor (statues, bas-reliefs, capitals and stained-glass windows), it symbolised the mighty power of the German empire.
Around it there is the New Town, an outstanding urban area, with a great diversity of artistic and architectural influences, in the characteristic and contrasted style of the turn of the last century.
Just next to it is the ambitious Amphitheatre district project, whose centre-piece is the amazing Centre Pompidou-Metz.
