Getting To And From Saarbrücken Airport
Saarbrücken Airport can be easily reached using Germany’s excellent public transportation system. Apart from public buses, there are also shuttle vans and taxis that are waiting to escort you to the terminal.
Unfortunately, no U-bahns or S-bahns connect to the terminal directly. You’ll need to go via Saarbrücken main train station (see next).
Saarbrücken has a long-distance train station, the Saarbrücken Hauptbahnhof. While there is no train connection from here to the airport, you can easily catch a shuttle or public bus to the airport terminal (see next).
Bus line R10 runs to the Saarbrücken Airport at regular intervals from the Saarbrücken main train station. There are also a wide variety of shuttle vans and minibuses that can bring you to and from SCN. Check the airport’s Shuttle Service page for more information.
The Kiosk Shop and Duty-Free shop offer all those items you look for while in an airport: alcohol, magazines, tobacco and sweets.
The Flughafen-Restaurant offers a sit-down menu and tasty meal options. A panoramic beer garden, open just in the summer months, also provides great views and delectable food. And then there’s a Take Off bar providing you with some relaxed time before you take off. (Who would have guessed by such a name…)
Saarbrücken Airport experienced some bad luck with its initial grand opening. Construction was completed in its current location in 1939 — just in time for the start of the devastating Second World War. Plans for opening the airport were postponed until 1964!
