We decided to visit Paris for easter holiday. It's about 5 hours drive from Frankfurt to Paris, and we thought it would be better to take a short break at Metz, which is located at the confluence of the Moselle and the Seille rivers, not far from the Schengen tripoint where the borders of Germany, France, and Luxembourg meet. It is the capital and the prefecture of the Lorraine region and the Moselle department.

The city is small, but gorgeous. I just love the details, the narrow alleys, and the architecture. The highlight is the gothic St Stephen's Cathedral, which really blew me away. I even found it more overwhelming than the famous Notre Dame Cathedral.

Overall, the city is really worth it to visit, especially as a teaser before continuing our journey to Paris.
