History[change | change source]
The district Saarbrücken was originally created in 1816. In 1974 the district and the district-free city Saarbrücken were merged, and the new administrative body was named Stadtverband Saarbrücken. Although it's not a district like others, most of its administrative tasks are same as those of a district.
