There was a lovely garden with impressive flowers and charming walkways when we visited. Otherwise, I'm sure the benches and the fountains with a view of the cathedral are lovely, but with the garden added, it's beautiful!

A typical, impressive French Square - very nice to look at and rest a while. There are benches opposite the square, so you can relax and watch. Or you can turn around and enjoy the beautiful view on the cathedral or Temple Neuf.

The whole riverside area including Place de la Comedie is impressive .The different styles of architecture show the development of the city through the ages and its all illuminated at night to great effect.

Comedy square is a nice place with beautiful buildings of theater, plenty of flowers and fountain, but it has big competitors in the near Le Temple Neuf and views to the Mosel rivers, so it didn't attract my attention too much.

Even in the dead of winter, this was a beautiful area. I imagine it's gorgeous in a nicer season! Unfortunately, the opera house was undergoing maintenance, so we didn't get to see that in all it's glory, but the area is gorgeous, and we really...More
