Capital City. Close up.

Saarbrücken. Regional capital. Right on your doorstep.

Saarbrücken benefits greatly from being a city of short distances. In no other capital city can you indulge in some retail therapy, experience the cultural buzz, dine out at one of the many fine restaurants or visit one of the many on-trend pubs and bars all within such close proximity. With its vibrant art and cultural scene, the many concerts and festivals and a varied night life, Saarbrücken stands out as a capital city in every sense of the word.

The bustling Bahnhofstrasse shopping mile with its broad range of shops and brand-name collections opens out directly into revitalised city neighbourhoods with small boutiques and their own unique charm. Saarbrücken is a green city. Whether you feel like chilling out after a busy day at work or relaxing with the family at the weekend – the many green oases in the city invite you to do just that.

The Franco-German Garden, the Bürgerpark or Staden park on the banks of the River Saar: Saarbrücken offers plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind amidst nature, all just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or take a walk on the “wild” side – the “urban forest on the city’s outskirts” is no more than a matter of minutes away.

The Saarland locals also have a passion for good food. So if fine dining is your thing, Saarbrücken is the place for you. Michelin-starred gourmet restaurants and quaint bistros are just a few steps apart, the popular Nauwieser Viertel neighbourhood with its scene bars and Baroque St. Johanner Markt square – where the locals like to sit back and watch the world go by – are all within easy walking distance. In Saarbrücken, everything is that little bit closer and more personal.

Your capital. Right on your doorstep.
