"A tiny VT page for the tiny Saarland ..." Saarland by MichaelFalk1969
Saarland Travel Guide: 152 reviews and 464 photos
The Saarland is the tiniest "Bundesland" (federal state) of Germany (not counting the city states of Bremen, Hamburg and Berlin). Historically, after WW 2 it was for some time in the balance if the Saarland would become an independent nation or become an integral part of France. The population finally opted for a return to Germany, but French cultural influences have always been strong here.
It is also the last federal state in germany that I visited (first time in 2009) which is a pity because despite its small size it has lots of outdoor and cultural experiences to offer. I especially recommend to do the 6 hour - hike to the "Saarschleife" river bend, one of the most beautiful hiking paths in Germany I know.
The downside is that the capital city (Saarbrücken) ist not what one would call attractive. But you can easily skip Saarbrücken for all the other friendly places in tiny Saarland.
