Saarland's regional capital can easily be explored on foot. Historic buildings, the bustling student district, modern shopping malls and a vibrant café and bar culture: Saarbrücken has an impressive mix of urban flair, a warm welcome and that special savoir vivre – the cultural and gastronomic proximity to neighbouring France can be felt everywhere.
Take a walking tour of the city and discover the diversity of the buildings designed by the famous Baroque architect Friedrich Joachim Stengel. The renovated Saarbrücken Castle, the Basilica of St. John, and the famous Ludwigskirche church are among the most important examples. The last of these ranks as one of the most significant evangelical Baroque sacred buildings in Germany, along with the "Michel" in Hamburg and the "Frauenkirche" in Dresden. And after an exciting walking tour of the city, the best way to experience the "soul" of Saarbrücken is in one of the many cafés around the historic St. Johanner Markt - indisputably one of the most beautiful squares in the city.
With the Saarland Card, you can take part in a two-hour walking tour of the city free of charge.
