We also rent the studio to other parties. If you are interested, please contact us.

Acting and Arts
A wonderful space with a relaxed and warm ambiance. It is the venue for most of our bigger events and some Milongas. This is also where the first Tango Queens Congress in 2020 took place. See photos on their website. Although it is not situated officially in the city centre, the A&A is only 5 Minutes walking distance from our headquarters and 15 from the train station.
Address: Dudweiler Landstrasse 7, 66123 Saarbrücken

Saar 05 Tanzsportzentrum
A nice space with a large wooden floor for occasional bigger milongas. This is the only space for which public transport or a car is recommended. The tram (Saarbahn) stops almost directly in front of the studio and will run long enough to get you back after any of our milongas.

How to get to Saarbrücken by train/plane

By train: Saarbrücken is connected with fast trains to all major cities in Europe. There are e.g. direct connections to Paris & Frankfurt – both take less than 2 hours.

Flight to Saarbrücken: Saarbrücken has a tiny airport that serves Berlin, Hamburg and a few other cities.  It is super if you happen to come from there, but booking a connecting flight to Saarbrücken is usually expensive. 

Flight to Frankfurt: The best option is to fly to Frankfurt/Main (FRA) and take the train to Saarbrücken. There is a „Regionalexpress“(regional train) that leaves  from the station for regional trains (Regionalbahnhof) in Terminal 1 to Saarbrücken. The regional train takes 2h45min and runs a couple of times per day. If you don’t catch this direct train, you will be offered connections via Mainz or Mannheim. You can of course also take the direct ICE (fast train) leaving from the „Fernbahnhof“ (also at the airport). If takes only 2 hours and might be pricier than the regional train. But that depends on how early you book your trip. 

Flight with Ryanair: Fly to Frankfurt/Hahn.
Do not assume that Frankfurt/Hahn airport is anywhere near Frankfurt. It is a smaller airport in the countryside ca. 1,5 hours by bus from Frankfurt. Getting from there to Saarbrücken, is no problem, but there is an easy and a more complicated option:
1. BUS: Take the bus shuttle directly to Saarbrücken. Do not forget to book in advance, because this bus is tiny. Unfortunately, it only runs a few times per day, so you might want to check out the next option via Trier:
2. BUS/TRAIN: Take a bus shuttle to Trier and from there the train to Saarbrücken. You will find the bus in front of the terminal building on the DEPARTURES side (go left out of the building). In Trier, the bus does not stop at the train station, but at a roundabout in the outskirts. You need to call a Taxi to get to the train station. (Call: +49 651 12012). There is a train from Trier to Saarbrücken every hour. This bus/train combination will take 2,5 hours minimum, if you are lucky to catch a bus upon arrival. It may take longer, if you have to wait for the next bus.
3. RENT-A-CAR: It is much faster (1,5 hours) and maybe even cheaper (if you travel as a couple or with a group of people) to rent a car at the airport and drive to Saarbrücken.

Flight via Paris: Fly to Paris and take the TGV/ICE to Saarbrücken. It takes only two hours and if you book early, you can get a ticket for 29€.

Flight via another airport: Luxembourg or Strassbourg are other options to get near to Saarbrücken. Both cities are in one hour driving distance to Saarbrücken.
