Line B of the «METTIS» bus takes you directly from the railway station to the «Ile du Saulcy».
Metz is located in the eastern part of France close to the border with Germany and Luxembourg.
If you come
  • by car: wherever you come from go towards Metz Centre and then go towards «Ile du Saulcy» where you will be able to park your car for free.

  • by plane
    • Luxembourg (LUX)
      This international airport is rather small and very efficient. It is situated 70 km from Metz. To reach Metz, take a bus just outside the airport to Luxembourg central railway station where you will find trains to Metz. The ride takes about 20 minutes and the fare can be paid on the bus. Trains to Metz then take about 45 minutes.

      For trains schedule Luxembourg-Metz: www.cfl.lu/en or en.voyages-sncf.com/en

      Note: When flying in from outside Europe, say to City «A» (say Paris, London, Frankfurt, Madrid), it is worth asking your travel agency the cost of adding the extra flight City «A»-Luxembourg (often operated by Luxair). Strangely enough, prices are often lower than going to «A» only, and once in Luxembourg you are almost there !

    • Paris
      There are two airports in Paris: Paris-Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and Paris-Orly (ORY).
      To reach Metz you will need to go first to the railway station «Gare de l'Est» using public transportation (www.aeroportsdeparis.fr/ADP/en-GB/Passagers/Home/) or by taxi (45€). In either case, count at least one hour.
      From «Gare de l’Est» high speed trains (TGV) take you to «Metz Ville» in 1h24 minutes.
      For trains schedule Paris-Metz: en.voyages-sncf.com/en

      Note of interest if you fly into Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG) airport: within the airport, there are very convenient direct (TGV) trains which take you in 1h10 minutes to the train station «Gare Lorraine TGV» located in Louvigny, about 30km from Metz. There are then frequent shuttles (6.10€ - 25 minutes) from «Gare Lorraine TGV» to «Metz Ville».
