Visiting new places: Saarbrücken

Hello everyone!

I’m back to share with you more pictures of my trip to Germany. On the third day of my stay there, we spent the whole day exploring Saarbrücken.

2a

We drove through the city until we made it to the outskirts, stopping once we reached the first place we wanted to visit.

We went to the Deutsch-Französischer Garten and we had a lovely morning there. Even though it was chilly, the sun was shining and we had a really good time. The park was really beautiful and we didn’t even walk through it all.

Next, we went back to the city and drove to one of the high parts of the city (in the left bank of the Saar river), where the Saarbrücken Castle is located (it’s the bottom picture on the right of the collage above). We parked the car and walked around for a bit before my brother took us to a spot where we could overlook the river and a part of the city.

The view was really beautiful and the sky looked kind of green somehow and it was extremely pretty.

After that, we went back to the car and drove the city center. We walked around for a bit stopping at Rathausplatz (the city hall’s square). The building is really beautiful having a completely different architecture to what we saw in the old part of town (the castle, for example). One thing that I really loved about Saarbrücken was the unique architecture of the buildings.

Our afternoon was spent walking around. We walked through the streets so that we could see the city properly.

We made it to the river and walked along it until we reached the Old Bridge (the one you can see in the pictures we took from the overlook point). The walk was really nice and I found myself thinking it would be really nice to live there.

After that we started walking back to the center. We soon found a Christmas market being held on the street and it was really cool. The rest of the day was spent walking through the commercial streets, entering some shops (and stopping at Starbucks of course).

The Christmas decorations were really beautiful at night and everything just looked so Christmas-y that I couldn’t help but feel happy. It was a really amazing day and I hope I can go back there in the future!

Until next time,
