What to do in Saarland, Germany ? Local tips 😉


Saarland is known for it's coal mining industry but I didn't have to dig deep to find some epic places to visit! I've been 3 times already to take on Destination Challenges and the region always managed to surprise me.

Let me share with you what I discovered with the help of friends and followers on Facebook and Instagram.



Saarland is heaven for art lovers

Everywhere you look you'll find art! Let me show what I found.

Weltkulturerbe Völklinger Hütte aka Völklingen Ironworks


This former steel factory is declared UNESCO world heritage and at the same time part of the European Route of Industrial heritage. It's home to lots of art exhibitions and of course also explains its former function and importance to the region.

I visited the site together with Sofie from Wonderful Wanderings a fellow Belgian Travel Blogger and we put together a video for your viewing pleasure ;-).



Here are also some photos from the urban art exhibition we visited.

The Urban Art Walk in Saarbrücken


The city of Saarbrücken really embraces art in all shapes and forms.
We discovered lots of street art in the heart of the city as you can see in the video below.



Here's also the photos from the Urban Art Walk we took in Saarbrücken

The Saar Polygon


This landmark and larger than life work of art can be seen from far and is build upon a pile of quarry debris. You can find it at Bei Fußenkreuz in Ensdorf. Worth a little uphil hike ;-).

Saarbrücken Stengel promenade 


The city of Saarbrücken is an absolute architectural gem and it's architect Stengel who is mainly responsible for that. His typical modern baroque style shaped the city.

I discovered his work everywhere in the city on the Stengel Promenade walking tour.

The origin of street art aka graffiti has its own wall in the city of Saarbrücken as well. Check it out, the art work changes on a regular basis.

Saarland's mining history


The region of Saarland has been at the heart of the coal mining and steel industry and that still shows.

Musée les mineurs in Wendel 


You can learn all about the mining industry at Musee les mineurs in Wendel. It's located in a closed down coal mine.

Here's a video of our visit

Saarbrücken Christmas Market

I've been to quite a few Christmas markets in my life but this was definitely one of the most social and coolest! You literally watch Santa Claus fly over your head...

  17. Male Maldives is the capital and the Maldives' main island. With a population of 133,412 residents and an estimated 50,000 workers in an area of 1.92 square kilometers, the city is one of the world's most densely populated cities. Male is situated on the southernmost tip of the North Male' Atoll (Kaafu Atoll), directly across from the Maldives International Airport. Male Maldives is a fantastic spot to visit for a short time. It houses many of the country's most important icons and landmarks. Among them, one of the most well-known among visitors is: (Old friday mosque, Stingray point, Fish -market, Artificial beach, Victory monument, Male Square, Museum, Souvenir Street etc...). During peak hours, the streets are very narrow and congested.male city
