  • I'm always happy in the old town of Saarbrücken, small alleys with small restaurants, Café BB´s, cosy atmosphere and some of the French Flair...oder just at the St. Johanner market at the fountain sit and people watch...

  • Visited in August in Saarbrücken. Impressions remained ambiguous. The city is large enough and we thought that it will please us. But not enough experience. The old town is very small on the area. There is one very beautiful and surprisingly light inside the Church (Basilica of St. Johann). She is beautiful. Charmed City Hall. Despite far from small size, does not look bulky and pleases the eye. On the other side of the River Saar is Saarbryensky Palace. Nothing particularly unremarkable. The city did not leave a vivid memories. But there's turbulent cultural life: a lot of festivals and other cultural events. We were in the Sun and even shops and not worked, but there were quite a lot of people, including tourists. Looked very active that is pleasing to the eye. Along the beautifully framed. We had a couple of hours to explore everything.
