The Regionalverband Saarbrücken is a Kommunalverband besonderer Art, that is, it is a special mix of a rural district and a district free city. It is located in the south of the Saarland, Germany.
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.
Geography[change | change source]
The Saar River flows through the district, through the city Saarbrücken in the centre of the district.
Coat of arms[change | change source]
|The original district had no coat of arms, the Regionalverband uses a coat derived from the one of the Counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken. The silver lion is taken from the County of Saarbrücken, the golden lion is the lion of Nassau.|
