Deutsch-Franzoesischer Garten

Reviewed By wkulisz - Mannheim, Germany

Highly recommended place for a relaxing walk, afternoon coffee or just do nothing in the park. This park has large lake, a lot of green places and few restaurants

Voelklinger-Huette

The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site – one of the most exciting places in the world The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is the first industrial monument from the golden age of industrialization to be included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List. It is the only fully preserved ironworks of its time. The industrial monument will be preserved for future generations. The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site shows outstanding Exhibitions on an international level.

This is a truly spectacular and instructive site to visit. The whole factory is just amazing and one can just chill at the thought of the living inferno it was when in activity. The lists is nicely and cleverly explained and you can access a surprisingly high number of places within the complex (even some on the top of it). Our only complain is about the deficient signaling. A path is is clearly defined on the available information but finding it once you're there is very difficult and apparently most visitors were more or less "lost" trying to find where to go... this is the only weak point. Otherwise the site is a must in the area as such industrial remains are not that common, especially when they are so spectacular and emblematic of a region life.

Museum Les Mineurs Wendel

Reviewed By cphlor

An interesting insight into an industry that has been and gone. From the history of the development of the mining industry in the Saar and Moselle regions, through the old central buildings of the Petite Rosselle mine, and down to the reconstructed "coal faces", the visit kept the interest of us all and is recommended.

Saarbrucken Old Town

Reviewed By Logan S - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Saarbrücken is a great city for shopping, theater and Concerts. French and Luxembourgish people cross the border just for those purposes. But considering its old town, there isn't as that much that Saarbrücken can offer you. It's small, it's nice, there are some great restaurants but due to its history, that's already it. Not much "old" buildings and stuff.

Ludwigskirche

Lovely gem in Alt-Saarbrücken. I've never seen a church like it. Beautiful inside and out and is really a highlight in Saarbrücken.

Europa Galerie

Reviewed By International_Traveler

This mall is overlooked since K-Town is closer to Ramstein but 45 minute drive away to the west is Saarbrucken Germany where there are numerous shopping opportunities, restaurants, and night life. Europa Galerie should be your starting point for exploration just park your car and everything is walking distance!!!!!

Rathaus St. Johann

Reviewed By EvaF2Eva - Kaiserslautern, Germany

Building of city hall in Saarbrucken is according to me the most beautiful building in Saarbrucken. It attracts everyone's attentions although there are more great buildings around. It is worth it to walk and spend some time to discover interesting details of its architecture.

Basilika Saarbrucken

Reviewed By Tobyandbunty - Uk

it's nice yes ....in a city that has little beauty to it. city is pretty grubby by German standards but pretty typical by French standards. Trier is nicer if you want to co,bine sightseeing with standard sort of shopping experience. Won't go to Saarbrucken again

Historisches Museum

Reviewed By MzEd7882 - Stuart, Florida

A German friend took us here on a rainy day... she did a terrific job of explaining the exhibits that were not self-explanatory. She also put the exhibits in a real context by sharing her family's wartime experiences in the Saar region; as it has been part of France and/or Germany over the years. It was thought provoking but not a "wow".
