Maizières-lès-Metz is a commune in the Moselle department in Lorraine in north-eastern France.

It was the original home of the German de Maizière family which, being Huguenots, had to emigrate from France to Prussia in the 17th century. Preserving the name of their original home up to the present, prominent members of the family include Lothar de Maizière, last Prime Minister of the German Democratic Republic, the politician Thomas de Maizière and the general Ulrich de Maizière.

The amusement park Walygator is located in Maizières-les-Metz.
