Road connections

The urban area is located at the crossroads of two major motorway connections: A4 and A31

A31 :  plays the role of a European transit between Benelux and Germany and the Rhone Valley

A4 :  East/West oriented infrastructure to facilitate the connections with the Ile de France region, Strasbourg and Germany.

Railway connections

In the middle of the Benelux/Switzerland/Italy and France/Germany/Eastern Europe railway junction, 75 high-speed trains ensure the daily transit of 3000 travellers.
Since the arrival of the East European TGV in 2007, Paris has been only 82 min away from Metz and Paris Charles de Gaulle only 71 min from the Lorraine TGV rail station.
Every day, 2 500 freight cars are accommodated at the Woippy marshalling yard. It is the second structure of this nature in France.

Waterway connections

The port of Metz is the first grain river port in France. 
It includes large multimodal platforms in order to provide a reliable outlet towards Rotterdam, Antwerp, and the North Sea. 
The average annual traffic is about 4 millions of tons specifically contributing to the economic development of the urban area and to the diversification of the freight modes of transport.

Air connections

Located by the A31 and A4 motorways as well as the Lorraine TGV rail station, the regional airport Metz-Nancy-Lorraine offers regular lines, leasure and freight flights. 

However, the urban area also has two other airports only 50mn from there, within a distance of 60kms, making it possible to extend the range of destinations to intercontinental flights. 
Luxembourg-Findel is located 69 kms from Metz, that is 50 min and Sarrebruck-Ensheim is 79 kms from Metz, or 60 min.
