Living in Saarbruecken

Saarbruecken, or ‘The City of Bridges’, is a beautiful German town that sits on the border to France in Saarland. True to its name, Saarbruecken’s attractions include the 16th century stone bridge that stretches across the Saar river, but the city has much more to offer than its historical bridges. It is an economic and cultural hot spot of the province, with a modern metropolitan atmosphere and an interesting jumble of German and French cultural influences. Saarbruecken has a long and interesting history, dating back centuries - visit the 18th century Saarbruecken Castle, and explore the local experience of World War Two.
