Outre-Seille and Porte des Allemands

Porte des Allemands

A walk with a guide through the Outre-Seille district, with its Saint-Eucaire's and Saint-Maximin medieval churches (the latter houses some remarquable stained-glass windows designed by Jean Cocteau).

The Porte des Allemands (13th - 16th century) is a unique example in France of a fortified bridge, as well as being the last remaining gate out of the eighteen that Metz's medieval wall originally counted. A veritable little castle, symbolic of the town, this example of Metz's military architecture offers some wonderful views over the river Seille and the gardens.
