Saarlouis: City Of The Sun King


Saarlouis: City Of The Sun King

Founded by King Louis XIV and constructed by Vauban, Saarlouis has plenty of charm and lots to see. Originally a fortress town and defensive stronghold, Saarlouis is now a festival city. The old town, greatly valued by locals, buzzes along the bierstrasse and invites you to a fun time out, summer and winter. The bar and restaurant terraces fill in time with the concerts and festivals, as well as the highly festive “Saarlouiser Emmes”. And between November and December the streets prepare to host the extremely bright and warm Christmas market. A day out in Saarlouis will help you understand the city’s motto “Dissipat atque fovet”: the sun dispels and warms.
