The history of the city begins with the construction of the now-ruined castle by Graf Siegfried of Luxembourg in 964. It received its town charter in 1291. The city has a bell foundry, the Glockengießerei Mabilion, which has been in operation since the 1770s, and as of 2003 the only one in Germany that makes bronze bells.
In 1945 to 1948 Saarburg was occupied by troops from Luxembourg. From 18 July 1946 to 6 June 1947 Onsdorf, in its then municipal boundary, formed part of the Saar Protectorate. French troops complemented the occupation until 1955.

una piazza molto bella, invita a sedersi per rilassarsi al suo e delle chiacchiere e della fontana, le facciate delle case sono un eccellente scenario.
Ottimo scatto, un luogo piacevole che traspare in modo evidente dalla foto.

For no particular reason, but when I saw the buildings, i got the feeling that they were dancing. And of course, the serenity on the ground is worth noting.
Beautiful click, with a nice narrative.

J'aime beaucoup que tu n'aies pas trop trafiqué l'essence de cette photo. Les couleurs des maisons ressortent parfaitement sur fond de ciel gris. Les gens semblent bien apprécier les terrasses disponibles.

Hello Georg - This attractive town square has an old world quaintness with its timber-framed buildings in their pretty, pastel colours. Your shot is inviting and you present the location in a way that shows off some very good detail.
Warm regards Rosemary
