We were pleased with the Metz cathedral and there are some light shows at night that one could catch. Unfortunately for us it wasn’t on that night that we were in Met.’z. Lastly, there were a couple of stained Chagall glass inside the cathedral.

The cathedral is very big and impressive. Although its location near the market could suggest a very intensive crowd it is big enough and not as crowded. Kids adored the glass window art. Free admission.
