Across the Moselle river from the Cathedral, is the Place de la Comedie. As a scenic backdrop for the square stands the Opera Theatre built in 1752 and the oldest opera house working in France.

Basically a temporary garden around a fountain, surrounded by the opera house, the temple neuf and the banks of the canal Moselle. Not that much to see.

There was a lovely garden with impressive flowers and charming walkways when we visited. Otherwise, I'm sure the benches and the fountains with a view of the cathedral are lovely, but with the garden added, it's beautiful!

A typical, impressive French Square - very nice to look at and rest a while. There are benches opposite the square, so you can relax and watch. Or you can turn around and enjoy the beautiful view on the cathedral or Temple Neuf.

Comedy square is a nice place with beautiful buildings of theater, plenty of flowers and fountain, but it has big competitors in the near Le Temple Neuf and views to the Mosel rivers, so it didn't attract my attention too much.

Impressive backdrop for this temporary garden which has popped-up in front of the building. The building is lovely although closed when we visited - hence why I only mention the garden.
