Living in Metz

"La Ville Jardin", as Metz is often called, is one of France's most picturesque cities. It is located in the country's northeast, close to the borders of both Germany and Luxembourg, making it a major city in the European Greater Region. The city's lush surrounding countryside, beautiful architecture and historic center will more than justify its prominent location to expats living in Metz. There is a bustling central market and the city's cultural scene, with plenty of tradition in its cafés, restaurants and streetscape, is equaled by its vibrant artistic and intellectual atmosphere. Newly arrived expatriates in Metz have the city's historic pedestrianized center, one of the largest in France, to explore and landmarks like the grand Saint Étienne de Metz Cathedral and the city's old Opera House to marvel at. As for contemporary culture, the striking Centre Pompidou is an absolute must for expats in Metz to visit early on.

Moving to Metz

As you might imagine for a city close to the meeting point of three countries, expatriates moving to Metz have plenty of travel options. The city is approximately an hour and a quarter by train from France's Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. Expats moving to Metz can also fly into the slightly nearer Luxembourg International Airport and take a train to the central Metz-Ville station. The city is equally well connected by railway to major cities in France, Luxembourg and Germany. Once you've arrived, you may like to get in touch with local global minds and other expatriates in Metz through the InterNations website. Our private messages, forums and discussion groups are an ideal way to do this, whether to organize an early meet-up or just to socialize and get an idea of what to expect as an expat living in Metz.

Working in Metz

It would be hard to come up with a better host city for expatriates than "La Ville Jardin". Expats working in Metz have a large, beautiful city center to enjoy, with a fantastic food scene and plenty of contemporary culture. Any expatriate working in Metz with an interest in architecture will count themselves doubly lucky, with iconic landmarks including the beautiful central railway station, the Saint-Pierre-aux-Nonnains basilica – the oldest church in France and one of the oldest in the world – and France's oldest opera house, the Opéra-Théâtre de Metz Métropole. Not only that, but when it comes to support and information on expatriation, the InterNations website has a wealth of content in the Expat Magazine, where you'll find pieces on topics like cross-cultural relationships and repatriation, and even articles penned by other InterNations members. Put all this together and you should find that 'la vie est belle' as an expatriate living in Metz.
