Collegiate Church St. Arnual

back to overview

The district of Sankt Arnual is situated In the southern part of Saarbrücken’s city centre. It was an autonomous village until a referendum in 1897, when it was decided that it should become a part of Saarbrücken. Even today, it is, however, sometimes referred to as the “village in the city“. In the early Middle Ages, this is where the village of Merkingen was established. It is said that the Merovingian King Theudebert II gave the village to Bishop Arnual as a gift. Arnual was later canonised and thus worshipped. The monastery as well as the village itself are named after him. The collegiate church of St Arnual was first mentioned in documents dating back to the Middle Ages. In its present day form, the church dates back to the 13th and 14th century...
