Day Trip to Metz France

As Luxembourg touches Belgium, Germany and France, it’s a great central location to make short day trips to other countries. Today we found ourselves in Metz, France.

The main attraction was Centre Pompidou-Metz, an exceptional museum with multiple exhibitions, portrayed as a mini version of the Paris location.
It features 4-6 exhibits on its floors that focus on either a different event or project.
The art, the music, the exquisite paintings left us in awe.
Given the complexity and time needed to see this museum, we were fortunate enough to be allowed to walk in and out and go at our own pace.
TIP: The train station offers passes that cover both a return ride to Luxembourg and a pass to the museum. If you’re doing a day trip, it could save you a few dollars.

While in and out of the museum, we wandered the streets of Metz and enjoyed the scenery…

As mentioned earlier, we took a break from the museum and decided to have a small lunch at a restaurant that received great TripAdvisor reviews: LES COPAINS D’ABORD which translates into “Friends first”!
Lunch was perfect – great apps, main courses and of course, dessert complete with my favorite drink GET 27.
After we finished touring the museum, we took off back to Luxembourg for the remainder of the evening.
