Historic Saarbruecken

Where to Go in Germany Saarbrücken is a little more than one hour by train to the south, provides a contrast to Trier in almost every way. Mainly in as much as it is largely new, fairly busy (as a centre of industry and administration) and, well, not particularly pretty.

There are some historic buildings, but the city was destroyed several times in her history, first by the Swedes in the Thirty-Year War
