Suggested excursions

Völklingen's location makes it ideal for excursions. Saarbrücken is the heart of the region and offers a fascinating blend of German and French culture. You can also head north to the Hochwald forest, or across the border to the Lorraine region, where you can visit Metz's popular flea market.
Saarbrücken, the regional capital of Saarland, is a modern city in the heart of the Saar-Lor-Lux region. Its love of all things French is visible everywhere, in its picturesque lanes and courtyards and in little bistros and countless restaurants. Exploring this more than 1,000 year-old city means discovering the work of Friedrich-Joachim Stengel, the great baroque architect.
The small town of Saarlouis, 25 kilometres north-west of Saarbrücken, owes its origins to Louis XIV. Its partially preserved star-shaped fortifications were designed by Vauban, the foremost defensive architect of his day. A variety of restaurants are now sited in the restored vaults of the casemates which were added half a century later by the Prussians.
