Single bar saarbrücken
Saarbrücken has been a primarily industrial city since coal extraction started in the first half of the 18th century.
The steel industry developed on that base and up to today Saarbrücken has many plants manufacturing various metal products and components.
It is one of Europe's shortest flights, lasting just 30 minutes over just 100 kms. Some of the Luxair planes continue from Saarbrücken to Hamburg and Berlin-Tegel and back.
You can connect to selected European destinations of Luxair from Luxembourg, but there are no options to continue your Luxair flight from Saarbrücken via Berlin or Hamburg on another airline.
Regional bus R10 travels once an hour from the airport to the main railway station and takes 28 minutes. Apart from flights to holiday destinations, the airport has only four, albeit frequently-operated, connections.
The shortest - and most often the cheapest - is the Luxair flight to Luxembourg Findel Airport, code-shared with Lufthansa.
Automotive components in general are another mainstay of the local economy, supplying many of the leading automakers all over Europe.
