HistoryEdit

The district was created in 1969 by merging the previous districts Trier and Saarburg.

GeographyEdit

The main river in the district is the Moselle. The area between its tributaries, the Ruwer and the Saar, is also well known as one of the prime wine regions of Germany.

MuseumsEdit

Coat of armsEdit

The coat of arms largely resembles the coat of arms of the Saarburg district. The castle in the middle shows the castle of Saarburg, even though now only the ruins of the castle remains. The red cross is the cross of Trier, as a large part of the Saarburg district (as well as of the new Trier-Saarburg district) historically belonged to the state of Trier. The blue bars were added after the merging with the Trier district, and symbolize that part of that district historically belonged to Luxembourg.

The district is divided into six Verbandsgemeinden.[2] The list contains the coats of arms, the names, the district areas, exemplarily the population figures from 1950 as well as the current population figures:
