At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, the Imperial Quarter was built in Metz, a model of urban planning born of the will of Emperor William II. It spreads all around the immense railway station, built between 1905 and 1908 on more than 3000 stilts. Built in grey sandstone, it is reminiscent of the robust castles of the Rhine valley. On either side of the district's spacious thoroughfares rise the colourful facades of buildings and private houses, built by architects from all over Europe. From Neo-Romanesque art to Art Deco or Jugendstil, all the architectural trends of the Belle Epoque blend harmoniously together.
