Metz – Central Railway Station

The exterior of the railway station, although the bright sun has rather ruined this photo. It was built during the period of German occupation in the late nineteenth century. The building was constructed on rather boggy ground, requiring some quite extensive piling to take place.

A little museum area. The railway station used to have apartments belonging to Kaiser Wilhelm, although they’re SNCF offices now.

The side room of the main terminal building.

The grand interior, nice and bright.

The man at the front of the photo is on an exercise bike.
