Saarbruecken is a nice little and lively student town. I was hoping to enjoy a bit of the 'Fasching', or carnival, which is very popular in this area, but my uncle didn't appear to be very interested. Then again, today was rainy and cold, so enjoying one of the processions in the area wouldn't have been that enjoyable anyway.
We went to the Schloss, castle, instead and enjoyed the city museum with exhibitions related to the first and second world wars and its impact on the region.
In the afternoon and evening, we watched five movies. My uncle has become quite a collector, owning about three hundred DVDs.
