One of my favourite squares here, very cosy and with an Italian atmosphere. On Sunday / Monday, however, the square was not really busy, most of the restaurants were closed.

It is kind of strange now that I am far away to review this place. I used to live 100 meters from Place Saint-Louis. It was indeed many years ago. Place Saint Louis is a must see in Metz. It is an old medieval square from the Middle Ages. It is surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops. Back 10 to... More

I loved the architecture especially the arched colonnades with their little shops, bars, cafes and restaurants within. The cobbled trapezoid 'square' evocative of the middle ages and surely witness to many a market, fayre or perhaps historic civil uprising, but currently focused on an antique Merry-go-round festively illuminated. The several bars here serve a huge array of potent Belgian beers... More

Gorgeous Italianate plaza on the eastern side of the old city. Cool eateries and wine spots that are frequented by locals.

Place Saint-Louis is always buzzing. The arcades are reminiscent of the squares and public monuments of the Italy. It is filled with places to wine and dine or simply a cup of coffee.

We love coming to Metz and walking in its old streets. It has an authentic feeing, mainly French with a touch of German heritage. The locals are very friendly and hospitable. The food is outstanding. We love coming here just before Christmas and it has a special feeing especially with kids. We have been coming here for the last four... More

La Place St Louis is a typical urban square about two block from the Metz cathedral. With a good number of bars, cafes, restaurants and a handful of shopping establishments, it is a good place to grab a bite and a drink after a solemn visit to the cathedral of Metz. Not quite a tourist trap but as close to... More

This is a beautiful square, which gives a good impression of the historic heart of Metz. Its facades and square make it a special ensembe, which makes it a pleasant place for a walk.
