Find the not to be missed sights of Metz
Spend a magical day at the Amnéville Zoo. Your Campanile hotel Metz Nord Talange is less than a 15 minutes from Amnéville Zoo. At this beautiful zoological park, treat your children to a magical day among animals from around the world! Big cats, gorillas, elephants, giraffes, monkeys, wolves, reptiles, etc. You can find more than 350 species there. Each microcosm reproduces the animals’ natural environment. Admire elephants on the African plains, jaguars in the Amazonian jungle or orangutans in the equatorial forest of Sumatra. Watch the feeding of the wolves, hippopotamuses, gorillas or penguins, with commentaries. Make sure not to miss the TigerWorld show, with takes place in a massive 2,000-seat hall. You’ll enter a tropical universe with cliffs, waterfalls, pontoons and caves. Soon, Rémy and his tigers will appear to give you a beautiful demonstration of gentle training, in this microcosm where the poetry and the violence of elements mix. Another show to take your breath away is the show with birds of prey in flight. The zoo's falconers ride on horseback in a giant arena. You can also see how Fabrice communicates with his parrots and how Pablo demonstrates the abilities of his sea lions.
Centre Pompidou-Metz, a cultural spot in the heart of the city. Born from a wish to decentralize collections from the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Centre Pompidou-Metz, inaugurated in 2010, is the first establishment to illustrate this decentralization policy. Devoted to modern and contemporary art, it hosts temporary exhibitions throughout the year, as well as live shows, projections and conferences. This multidisciplinary cultural program is of interest to all fields of creation and most of the time supplements the reflections proposed in the exhibitions. By crossing disciplines, the museum wants to offer original experiences and surprise the viewer at artistic get-togethers. Its close collaboration with the Centre Pompidou also allows it to draw from its reserves. With more than 100,000 works of art, it’s the largest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe. As a twinned institution, the Centre Pompidou-Metz thus promises to show off these collections by presenting them from a new perspective. Workshops aimed at raising the awareness of young people to the arts and developing their creativity are also proposed. At just a 5-minute walk from your Campanile hotel, this art center will amaze by both its atypical architecture and its avant-garde program of events.
An exotic stroll in Metz's Botanical Gardens. Purchased by the city of Metz in 1866 from an individual, the current location of the Botanical Gardens now consists of a villa surrounded by a park of slightly over 4 hectares. Construction will be done little by little and it will host many plant species. Designed like an English garden (in other words irregular shaped, as opposed to a more orderly French garden), there you’ll find about a hundred species of trees, including rare specimens like a sequoia nearly 40 meters tall and more than 140 years old! Here you’ll also see a California nutmeg, Chinaberry, honey locust and the European nettle tree. Collection greenhouses and architectural remains of the Universal Exhibition of 1861 house cacti and palm trees. A few water features, here and there are home to water lilies and water plants. If you’re with your children, note that they can discover part of the garden sitting in a small train. Before going back to your Campanile hotel Metz Centre Gare, enjoy the perfumed scent of 80 rose bushes growing in the rose garden, where you can also find perennials and creepers such as winter jasmine or variegated-leaf hardy kiwi.
