Saarbrücken is the capital of Saarland, the smallest territorial state of the Federal Republic of Germany and the last to have joined the Federation in 1957. It is located at the French border on the transport axis Frankfurt – Paris. The wealth of coal deposits has shaped the history of Saarland as an important center of coal and steel industry. With the steady decline of coal mining, the reshaping of Saarland into a center of innovation in the heart of Europe is underway. The geographical location results in the typical Saarland lifestyle with elements from French and German culture, particularly visible in the great food that is served in both affordable eateries and Michelin-starred restaurants.

The Saarland University was founded in 1948 by the French administration. The location in pleasant woodland at the edge of Saarbrücken offers a lively campus atmosphere. For further information about the university please visit:


In close distance to the urban area of Greater Saarbrücken, vast forests in a hilly countryside invite to hiking and cycling tours.  The Saar loop “Saarschleife” and the UNESCO World Heritage ironworks “Völklinger Hütte” are the most famous monuments to be visited.
