Same issues as on the Place d'Alliance. Some of the linden trees are slowly dying. Predominantly known for the symmetry of the buildings. Link between the City Hall and the Palace of the Dukes of Lorraine.

After an exciting tour in the city this place is to come down. Walk a round and enjoy the views or have a seat on one of the benches. There are only very few cafes around.

The link between the magnificent square and the architectures of pre-emptive magistrates is an open space surrounded by beatifull trees. You can imagine how it was practiced in the 18th century for millitairy exercises.

Not as big as Place Stanislas but pretty nice and leads straight to the bigger esplanade. Lots of opportunities for shade on hot and sunny days.

Beautiful parc/boulevard leading to Place Stanislas. You are sure to walk by/through it if you explore the restaurants around the Place. The trees lining the park and the statues there found make it a peaceful and quieter area, especially after visiting the adjacent plaza.
