Saarbrücken, often referred to as the “gateway to France”, is the right place to combine business with pleasure and to experience your event in a unique environment.

Here, French “savoir vivre” merges with the charm of the lifestyle in Saarland. Experience the capital of Saarland while strolling through shops, discover the diverse eateries or visit the small cafés in Saarbrücken city centre.

The St. Johanner Markt at the heart of Saarbrücken is only 1 km away from the Congresshalle and invites you to linger with its many restaurants, bistros and trendy hangouts. Whether for breakfast, lunch, after shopping, for an aperitif with friends or for dinner – enjoy the buzz on the streets!

Many thanks to the City Marketing Saarbrücken for the great photos

Everything is very close together and you can explore the different shops on foot. From the Bahnhofsstraße, over the St. Johanner Markt to the Luisen- or Nauwieser Viertel – here you can spend an enjoyable day.

Get inspired for your next shopping trip.

Saarbrücken – A special history

#visit.saarbruecken takes you to wonderful corners of Saarbrücken. The city is not only renowned for its many shops, boutiques, pubs or star restaurants – its special location in Saarland also gives Saarbrücken a special historical significance. Visit the Saarbrücken Castle, descend fourteen metres into the underground medieval castle complex or take a guided tour of the battlefields of the Franco-Prussian War (1870/1871).

Visit the state capital Saarbrücken, experience the city’s unique flair and the warm hospitality of the local people.

Oh, by the way: Did we mention that in just 110 minutes you can arrive in Paris – for breakfast if you want – from Saarbrücken Central Station?!
