The first signs of the city’s history date back to 770. Since then, the heritage has continued to grow. In the 18th century, Louis de Cormontaigne, following in the footsteps of Vauban, fortified the town with the construction of the Yutz, two lock bridges and Sarrelouis Gate. The city jealously guards the last Altar of the Fatherland, erected on 22 September 1796 and listed as a Historic Monument of the French Revolution.
