This activity can be a bit long but it was really interesting to learn about the History of the region. The place is definitely beautiful. If you plan to visit it, think about improving your language skills as the descriptions are in German and French!

The place is interesting to see but not very large. The Museum is specialized in the 20 th. century close to the entrance in one place and one can see the old walls of the middleage (16. and 17. thcentury) inside on the bottom.

Here you can inform about the history of the more than1000 yearsold city of Saarbrücken. The caves are impressing and also the history of the region. Highly recommendable.

Only 5€ per person and definitely worth it. It's outside appearance is deceiving of its size. Majority of the museum is underground. Expect to spend at least 2 hours here, longer if you understand German or French. It is a great place for those interested...More
