Lord Mayor’s Words of Greeting
The state capital of Saarbrücken is the regional centre of the Saarland and is situated at the heart of the Saar-Lor-Lux region. The city has approximately 180.000 inhabitants and is strongly influenced by its proximity to France and the chequered history of a French-German border town. The university, trade fair and conference city is set amidst vast woods and enchants visitors with its French charm, which is reflected in the narrow alleys at the foot of the castle and in the pedestrian precinct at the St. Johanner Market Square.Weiterlesen
