Georg J. von Hauberrisser, the architect who designed the town halls in Munich and Wiesbaden, was also responsible for the construction of Saarbrücken’s Neo-Gothic town hall, which was erected between 1897 and 1900.

The authentically preserved façade is decorated with sandstone statues representing the trades of bygone times. There is a miner, a smelter, a farmer, a brewer, a merchant, and a tanner. The significance of the figures of St. George and the dragon is unclear, but they probably represent the battle between good and evil. Inside it is worth taking a look at the ballroom, which provides the venue for over 1,000 marriages per year in a festive atmosphere.
