brève description:

After having to be rebuilt several times, it was thoroughly renovated and refurbished in 1989 to shine in new splendour. Boasting its old facade, a new central block, and an extended loft, it presents itself today as a château with a common touch, e.g. regularly hosting live broadcasts of the Streit im Schloss talkshow. The château's basement and the adjoining annex are home to the Historic Museum Saar. The former town hall, a number of historic buildings, and an adult education centre reside around the square in front of the château. In 1993, the Square of the Invisible Memorial was inaugurated - more than 2000 cobblestones were engraved with the names of former Jewish cemeteries in Germany and now pave, chiselled-side down, the ground of the square in front of the châeau
