Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Metz, France area.
Metz -- capital of Lorraine in northeastern France, on occasion called the Garden City, and pronounced in French as "mess" -- graces eastern banks of the River Moselle. It ranks as a regional cultural, commercial, and transportation center, producing tobacco, food, and wine. A Middle Ages capital of Carolingian Kings, Metz as of the 1970s has become a university city linked by highway and rail tracks to Paris, Strasbourg and Brussels. Over time, Metz has repeatedly changed hands, losing and regaining independence on several occasions. In 1552, it declared itself an independent republic, only later to be absorbed by France. After Napoleon III surrendered to Kaiser Wilhelm I, Germany took over Metz, restored to France in 1918 at WWI’s conclusion. Then Nazi Germany re-annexed the city in 1940, with the Allies liberating it in 1944.
Metz, blooming with well-kept flower beds and other scenic landscaping, is known for its medieval cathedral of Saint-Etienne, near the Grand Hotel de Metz, surrounded by cafes and bars. A multitude of Gallo-Roman ruins in and around Metz include an aqueduct, thermal baths, and part of an amphitheater. Also within the Lorraine region is the lovely Nancy, home to an ornate city hall, the Musee des Beau Arts and the Musee Historique Lorrain, tracing the region’s illustrious history. Lorraine crystal is produced in Nancy’s Daum factory. Skiing, biking and hiking, hot air ballooning, and river barging are popular in the region, dotted with family-owned inns, bed and breakfasts, and small hotels.
