Culture, culinary delights, leisure activities - Saarland and the Greater Region have a lot to offer. Instead of the hectic hustle and bustle of the big city, Saarland is a place of warm hospitality and lived interculturalism: whether it's baguettes, wine and cheese from neighboring France, international concerts in Luxembourg or one of the colorful city festivals in Saarbrücken - there is always something to discover here. And it’s all just a stone's throw away.

The Saarland is famous for its good food. From Dibbelabbes to Hoorische, the motto here is "Hauptsach, gudd gess!” (“Eating well is the most important thing!”). And this is also reflected in the top cuisine; nowhere is the density of star-rated restaurants as high as in the Saarland. The neighboring Moselle region also invites you to visit one of its countless wineries.

If you prefer to spend your time outdoors, the Saarland is also the place to be. Whether it's a bike tour in the Bliesgau Biosphere Reserve, a hike in the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park or stand-up paddling on the Saar, outdoor enthusiasts get their money's worth in Saarland. The densely wooded state in southwest Germany is known for its well-developed network of hiking trails and its sustainable tourism. 

Culturally, the state capital of Saarbrücken also has a lot to offer. Several theatres and museums, colourful nightlife and events such as the Max Ophüls Film Festival are an invitation to go out, discover the city and meet new people. In addition, architecture fans will love Saarland’s rich industrial culture. This includes the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site, which is one of the most popular sights in the world according to the travel platform TripAdvisor.

Saarland is definitely a great place to live. The cost of living in Saarland is lower than in other regions of Germany, and the housing market is also fairly well positioned. Interested in learning more? Simply visit the tourist office website for more information.
