Its lovely to walk around the old part of Saarbrücken, enjoying a glass of wine in the shade of a tree. At night take a walk on the old castle wall enjoying the view of central Saarbrücken where one can see the beautiful combination of light nature and old buildings.

Most places one visits as a tourist have wonderful attractions but one really wouldn't want to "live" there. After a few days in Saarbrucken, I think the opposite is true. There really isn't much to see as the city was mostly destroyed during the war and the "old" buildings are mainly reproductions of the originals. However, there are nice shops and restaurants in a walkable city area and the city appears like it would be a great place to live.

My first time visit to Saarbrucken old town. Rathaus St.Johnn is impresive. Was built between 1897 and 1900, and dominated by a 54meter tower, from which the carrillon sounds daily at 3.15PM and 7.19PM

Spent a couple of hours touring the old city and it was a lovely experience. Pleasant walking tour through the highlights of the city. Saarbrucken existed already in Julius Caesar times and was a part of Galia Belgica but modern city developed in 20th century. Print out a guide or itinerary and go on an exploratory walk.

Though most German cities are very unattractive (Saarbruecken not an exception) I actually enjoyed the old town. The Area around the St. Johann square is actually very pleasant and has a French touch to it. Right now the view of the old time is dominated by the Christmas market. Worth the visit.
