Saar Crane

The Saarkran (Saar Crane) flanking the Wilhelm-Heinrich-Brücke (Wilhelm Heinrich Bridge)
bears witness to Saarbrücken’s flourishing trade history. In 1761 it was first constructed by the Krahnen-Gesellschaft according to plans drawn-up by Stengel and, after being destroyed on several occasions, its final reconstruction in 1991 was financed by donations.
