This rather small state (about 1.0 million inhabitants on 2,570.16 square km) is situated between Lorraine (France), Luxemburg and Rhineland-Palatinate. It's landscape is shaped by forests and agriculture. Thirty years ago, Saarland was still a region of coal mines and steel mills, but today the main economic focus is on new technologies, commerce and services.
