Metz, Art & Tech metropolis

Only 85 minutes from Paris by TGV high-speed train, discover Metz Métropole, a land making a comeback in the heart of a cross-border region (Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg).

Winning 4th place in the “European Best Destination 2019” competition, UNESCO Creative City of Music and strong in 3000 years of history, Metz, “Ville d’art et d’histoire” (French City of Art and History), offers a remarkable heritage preserved in various architectural styles.

Come and visit the cathedral, the Gallo-Roman thermal baths in the Musée de la Cour d’Or, and the new exhibitions in Centre Pompidou-Metz. Come and see a concert at l’Arsenal, listen to lyrical tune at L’Opéra-Théâtre or discover the Metz musical scene at the BAM (Boîte à musique - music box) created by Rudy Ricciotti. Many high-profile architectural names have also shaped Metz, including Blondel, Shigeru Ban, Christian de Portzamparc, Paul Chemetov, Jean-Michel Wilmotte...

The Art & Tech metropolis is used to structure the innovative industries in the area: digital industries, materials and processes, and creative and cultural industries.

The Inspire Metz label condenses the city’s creative energy into one sign and name. The label is the banner of a metropolitan strategy aiming to accelerate the creation of value at a local level, and to attract visitors, businesses, higher metropolitan jobs and new residents from outside of the area.

The Quartier de l’Amphithéâtre (Amphitheatre District), totem district of the city, the Centre Pompidou-Metz and soon the Hotel Starck, Bliida (third location of French Tech), the Constellations festival of digital arts, the European technology campus at Metz-Technopôle... are all assets that enable Metz to be identified as a first-rate destination, and a hotspot for creation and innovation.

Come and visit, stay, innovate, create and join in with the dynamic of an inspired and inspiring European city!
