City Information

Saarbrücken is the largest city in the German state, Saarland. Germany's border with France bounds Saarbrücken on the city's west side. The bulk of attractions, accommodations, and businesses are located along the river Saar, which gave the city its name.

One of its most iconic landmarks is the stone bridge over the river Saar, built in the 16th century. Nearby, you’ll see the Saarbrücken Castle, an imposing Baroque castle that now hosts the Historical Museum Saar. From the castle, cross the river to the right bank, where you can stroll around the historic old quarter of the city and visit the Old Town Hall.

When it comes to dining, Saarbrücken certainly will not disappoint. Since the city has frequently changed hands between France and Germany as borders were drawn and redrawn, the cuisine implements the best of both cultures. St. Johanner Markt is a lively area dotted with bars, restaurants, and bistros to experience the hearty fare of Saarland.

Saarbrücken offers plenty of ground transportation options to head east into Germany or west into France. FlixBus, Sindbad, and BlaBlaCarBus operate most intercity bus service from the city.
