Theme Day: What your city is known for


"When people think of my city, they think of . . ."
I asked friends and family and most peoples first thought of the city is the river called Saar, the many bridges (the name of Saarbrücken consists of the name of the river Saar and the word bridges (in German "Brücken") and the "skyline" of Saarbrücken. When standing at the castle wall you have a great view. The most popular bridge is the "old bridge" which you can see in the front, the big street is the "stadtautobahn", a highway through the city.
other daily photo blogs that show today what their city is known for:

I am sorry I don't know much of your city, but I remember you once showed a picture of a closed swimming pool, and your sadness, so, being a pool lover, whenever I think of Saarbrucken I think of your post!
