In the heart of the so-called Saar-Lor-Lux triangle, Saarland is strongly influenced by its neighbours France and Luxembourg. The Lorraine region of France is only a stone’s throw away and Luxembourg a mere 90 km from Saarbrücken.

With a population of around 990,000 and an area of 2,570 square kilometres, Saarland is the smallest of the German federal states after the city-states of Berlin, Bremen and Hamburg. Around one third of Saarland is covered by forest. For many years, the economy of Saarland was marked by mining and the steel industry. Today, the focus is on new industries, technologies, and services.

Saarbrücken is the capital city of the German federal state of Saarland. With a population of 180,000, Saarbrücken is one of the smaller German major cities. A modern, forward-looking and forward-thinking city with French Flair. Saarbrücken boasts an attractive historic city center and varied cultural and recreational amenities. It has a rich cultural life, a vivid nightlife and much more to see and do. For more information visit:
