SAARBURG – Saarburg

The lively history of the city of Saarburg and its castle began in 964 A.D. with the purchase of mount ‘Churbelun’ by Count Siegfried von Luxemburg.Of all the german castles built upon hills, the Saarburg is one of the oldest and loveliest. Its circular fortification, 137 meters long and up to 50 meters wide, was surrounded by 8-meter high walls. Because of its excellent topographical location – on a hilltop, surrounded by a river and ponds – not many invaders were successful in conquoring the Saarburg. The fortress offers a wonderful view of the city and of the Saar River Valley.
