Saarland, the smallest German Federal State, has been a major factor in disputes between Germany and France after both World Wars. On January 1, 1957 Saarland became a German state and this event is considered a cornerstone in modern Franco-German relations.
Saarland is named after the Saar River, a branch of the Mosel. The Saar River winds through the countryside through the scenic valley vineyards and through the town of Mettlach, a very popular tourist attraction. Among the tourist attractions is the city of Saarbrucken and the Baroque Ludwigskirke built in 1775. The cuisine is a unique mixture of French and German recipes and atmosphere.
