Saarbrücken : Michelin's recommendations


The capital of the Saarland was first mentioned in record books in AD 999, although it dates back to Celtic and Roman times. The Romans built a small town at the intersection of two roads, Metz-Worms and Trier-Strasbourg, and erected a stone bridge that served until medieval times. The industrialisation of the Saarland in the 19 C saw the start of a new economic era. Although WWII left its mark, the city with the silhouette of a baroque princely residence developped into a regional metropolis.

Tourist attractions Saarbrücken : Things to see and do

  • Ludwigsplatz und Ludwigskirche Recommended Recommended

    Ludwigsplatz D - 66117 Saarbrücken

    Ludwigsplatz is bordered by eight palaces of different sizes, forming a perfect illustration of the passage from the Baroque to the Classical style. The church (by Stengel) is one of the most beautiful and uniform Baroque constructions in Germany.

  • St. Johanner Markt Interesting

    St. Johanner Markt D - 66111 Saarbrücken

    The old city around the market is the true heart of Saarbrücken. The focal point is the beautiful fountain with its obelisk and cast-iron railing. Life pulses in the winding streets and many bistros.

  • St John's Basilica, Saarbrücken Interesting

    St-Johanner Markt D - 66111 Saarbrücken

    Built by Stengel in the 18C, this church is another Baroque jewel. The four confessionals are precursors of the Louis XVI style. The mirror ceiling represents a rose, the coat of arms of the town of St. Johann.
