Cheap flights to Saarland

Saarland is deemed as the smallest state among all the states in Germany. Despite its small stature, one cannot undermine Saarland’s unique cultural appeal. Having had been fought over by France and Germany over its jurisdiction, you can call Saarland as a region boasting of nature wonders. For one, its scenic walk, the 218km Saar-Hunsrück-Steig was voted as one of the country’s most beautiful long distance trail. A sneak peek at the Völklinger Hütte, deemed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is another historical feature that should not be missed. Just across the Saar River, another historical place is waiting for travellers to be discovered. In Saarland, you will not only feast your eyes on a number of historical wonders. You can also take delight with their superb food cuisine, a fine mixture of German and French flavours and styles. It’s like fusing two countries into one cultural region. And this is what sets Saarland apart from the rest of Germany’s regions.

Located just 10km from the city proper is the Völklinger Hütte, a historical sight that is considered one of Europe’s great heavy-industrial relics.

In 1986, it blasted its last rig and was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1994. The overall architecture gives of both a Dickensian and futuristic, dystopian aura. Despite this, it displays modern works of art amid rusted pipes and aging concrete, giving off a light and fresh feeling especially to tourists.
