Relax in Saarbruecken with art, music and wine

Join Sascha Stroschke - better known as DJ Curly Buuh - on a personal tour of Saarbruecken. His home city is chilled out, just like his music.

The first stop on the DJ Curly Buuh's city tour is the Nauwieser district, one of the few areas of Saarbruecken that wasn't destroyed during World War Two. The narrow streets in the late 19th-century quarter are perfect for strolling, and there are plenty of cafes to tempt you. With its many shops, the district really does feel like a village within a city.

Go wine tasting in Saarbruecken

"Die Winzer" - or "The Vintners" - is Sascha Stroschke's second tip. It's a place to buy antiques and works of art, as well as sample some delectable wines.

His last tip is the art silo, a former grain silo on the banks of a dead tributary of the River Saar. It has galleries, a temporary movie theater and studios on nine floors, where visitors can watch artists at work, or enjoy exhibitions, films and video art. On weekends, the art silo is transformed into a salon, where you can begin the evening in typical chilled out Saarbruecken fashion.

And with any luck, it'll be Sascha Stroschke, alias DJ Curly Buuh, working the decks.
