A rich and colourful cultural life
Along the border between Germany and France, in the area of Merzig- Büdingen/Wellingen and Launstroff/Scheuerwald, 26 sculptures are lining the old border path. The sculptor Paul Schneider and other artists from all over the world created those sculptures during an international sculptor symposia running from 1986 to 1992 which are known as "Stones at the Border".
As regards the ten "Gardens without Borders" between Weiskirchen in Saarland, Bitche in France and Schengen in Luxemburg, national borders play no role, either. The gardens stretch over the borders of three countries and impress visitors with their baroque and renaissance splendour.
Museums and theatres
Our various museums, like Saarlandmuseum, Historic Museum or Newspaper Museum, offer a diverse array of exhibits that not only experts find inspiring. In the Old Völklingen Steel Works, which were in operation until 1986 and declared UNESCO World Heritage Centre in 1994, visitors can still feel the pulse of one of the formerly biggest steel works in Europe, walk through exhibitions or enjoy musical events. Our State Theatre, which consists of three different houses, has an excellent name going beyond the borders of the regions andfollowsamodernand diverse approach.
