This church is absolutely amazing and it was meticulously clean. White and gold with pink columns. Obviously they take great pride in the building. Lots of details everywhere you look. We would highly recommend.

This is the only Catholic church nearby. From the outside it doesn't look very different from the Johanneskirche, some meters apart from this, however inside is a very beautiful and amazing place to go to pray and visit.

This church was impressive. Except for the masses you can enter and there is no fee to watch. Nice and cool inside on a hot summer day. Consider it a must see when in Saarbrücken.

This church is situated pretty close to the tourist center of Saarbrücken, which is called St. Johanner Markt. The decoration is barock and very nice. You can take a rest inside.

it's nice yes ....in a city that has little beauty to it. city is pretty grubby by German standards but pretty typical by French standards. Trier is nicer if you want to co,bine sightseeing with standard sort of shopping experience. Won't go to Saarbrucken again
