Potato Island

Potato Island

Potato Island – fun on the beach right in the heart of Saarbrücken. A fine sandy beach, shady palm trees, cool cocktails, the chance to chill out on a sun lounger: Enjoy these holiday pleasures for free. Beach, sun loungers and umbrellas won’t set you back a penny – and neither will the sun.

Next to the Bismarckbrücke (Bismarck Bridge) on the banks of the river Saar.
