I'm researching a future trip and plan to spend a day exploring Metz before leaving in late afternoon. I seem to have found a website that says the (central) train station no longer has lockers. Is there anywhere to store luggage nearby, or might one of the hotels allow me to leave my suitcase there for a few hours?
Thanks very much.
My question is and I so hope you can help me. My brother was born and died Nov 1954 at the army base in Verdun France.We were told that he was buried in a catholic cemetery right outside the gates of the base and I have been trying to no avail to find the name of it. Does anyone know of a catholic cemetery by Maginot army base. I would be so grateful if anyone knows. Thank you so much.

I would like to know if you can take any classes in the following or equally any activities a group of 14 people can do in Nancy?
Metz doesn't seem to be very high on the tourist trail, with only 11 postings in the Forum!
Can anyone suggest a nice place to stay, convenient to the train station?
Thanks very much.
I arrive in Nancy on a Sunday in July, after the car rental places close. Anyone know of a reliable taxi for transport to Sexey-aux-Forges and Agincourt?
Research for my great-grandfather lead me to a site where a handwritten note said he was born in Landrefang. I googled this term and can't find anything but a street named that in St Avold, plus a mention of this town in a US Military record from World War I. I do see a Laudrefang near St. Avold, though, on my large-scale map of France
Does anyone know if Landrefang and Laudrefang are the same place, or if not, where Landrefang might be?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.
My great-grandparents and their ancestors came from villages near Thionville (Uckange, Guenange, Bousse). I plan to visit in 2014 and wonder if anyone has any idea if/how I can check church marriage, birth, and burial records? Thanks very much.

Wondering which would be the closest Hotel to the American Military Cemetery? Which is closet to the train station in Verdun?
I am visiting the Verdun area in Nov 2010. I want to get to a small village called Chatel Chehery, about 30 miles to the northwest of Verdun. Besides renting a car, are there any other options? Is taxi feasible? Any local buses?
Is hitchhiking from Verdun safe? (I can only drive an automatic transmission, so stick shift is out. I know renting a car would be the best, but I've never driven outside the U.S., so I am not particularly eager to try, except if there is no other good option) Is there anyone who lives in Verdun or Sainte Menehould who would be willing to give me a lift (I'd be happy to pay, of course)? Merci.

Rail travel via Luxembourg
Posted: Sun February 3, 2008 07:43 PM EST
I plan a trip in the spring. I remember that I saw a special rail deal connecting Luxembourg, Trier, Saarbrucken & Metz. Is there such a pass? If so, how does it work. I plant to base in Trier a few days and it would be good to know.
In lieu of that what is the fare between Lux. and Trier and Lux. and Nancy or Metz? I could not find a Luxembourg rail site to get this info.
I plan on spending a day in Nancy en route to Paris by train. Is there a place to store luggage (i.e. the train station) while we tour the city?

My daughter will be studying at the Georgia Tech campus near Metz this summer. I am trying to decide the best place for her to fly into in May, 2007. If this fast train from Paris will be operating then, perhaps it would be best. I have also considered Luxembourg and Strasbourg. Any tips you have will be appreciated. She is will be travelling with a young man so she will not be travelling alone.
Hello, I am starting a teaching job in the Metz suburbs in October and will be living there until May. I think the custom for finding an apartment in France is to pay a bunch of money to an agence and get a list of appartments, then pay 2 months rent security deposit, etc. Is this what everyone does, including students? I'm American and I'm used to not having to find an agency, just going out and picking up rental guides for free. How do most students in town end up finding apartments and such? Is there any areas or districts of Metz that are better/worse than others for safety/crime? Anyone have any good apartment leads?
My boyfriend and I will be going to France in August. I want to visit the battlefield and monuments at Verdun, but I would also like to see more of the region. Should we stay in the town of Verdun itself? If we wanted to stay in Metz or Nancy, how difficult would it be to visit Verdun? We will be traveling mostly by train, but had planned to rent a car while in this area. We will have two or three days in the area.
