Anglers' huts

In order to continue the Maginot Line in the area east of Metz, the French decided to use the strategy of flooding. For this they dammed the rivers and allowed a series of lakes to form. The war is long gone, but the lakes are still there -- a paradise for French and German anglers alike.
