Casemates

Casemates

The Saarland Regional History Museum is a wonderful opportunity to experience 500 years of history right before your very eyes. Behold the remains of the mediaeval castle, a 15th century shooting range, fortifications and casemates from the Renaissance, a 17th century Ballhaus (hall for ball games) built in the castle moat and a dungeon from the 18th century: and all of that underground, below the streets of this modern city.

Permanent exhibition on the recent history of the Saar
The redesigned and expanded permanent exhibition deals with the chequered history of the Saar region from 1870 until the close of the 20th century.
