Keravision - Villeroy & Boch

A museum with a historical ambience

Ceramic art and culture in the mirror of time

As a highlight, Keravision presents a quarter of a millennium of company history in the historical ambience of the Old Abbey.

On your journey through the eras, you will witness how historical events are reflected in design and “zeitgeist”: from the successful “Old Luxembourg” tableware decor – created in 1770 and still contemporary today – to the spirit of optimism of Art Nouveau, the purpose-oriented post-war years and the sophisticated complete range for all areas of life.

Watch the film in the baroque chapter house, where you can relive the milestones in the company’s history. You will get to know the people who guided the entrepreneurial destiny and gave their time a ceramic expression – entertainingly presented by the world star and brilliant narrator Sir Peter Ustinov.

The picture book city

Metz is the center of the Lorraine region. You can reach Metz from the Linslerhof via the highway (approx. 35 minutes) or via a scenic country road. The picture-book city of Metz lies at the confluence of the Seille and Moselle rivers. The Saint-Étienne Cathedral, which was built between 1220 and 1520 in the Gothic style and is one of the most beautiful and largest Gothic church buildings in France, is definitely worth a visit. With a vault height of more than 41 m, it is the third highest Gothic cathedral; the area of its stained glass is the largest in a French cathedral at around 6500 square meters. It serves as the episcopal church of the diocese of Metz.

Roman Villa Borg

Over 100 years ago, the teacher Johann Schneider discovered traces of a Roman settlement between Perl-Borg and Oberleuken and carried out the first small excavations.

Since April 1, 1987, a Roman villa has been scientifically excavated in Borg by the cultural foundation for the district of Merzig-Wadern in cooperation with the State Conservation Office, the labor administration and the municipality of Perl.

It turned out that the remains of one of the largest Roman villa complexes in the Saar-Moselle region are hidden here. In 1994, the decision was made to resurrect the entire estate district in accordance with the excavation results and the current state of villa research. In the years that followed, the villa baths with tavern, the manor house with museum furnishings, the landscaped courtyard, the residential and farm wing and the gateway were rebuilt. The facility is now one of the most interesting excursion destinations in Saarland. Due to the ongoing work, the appearance of the villa changes almost daily. Excavations continue on an area of over 7.5 hectares.

Favorite city of the Sun King

Many Saarlanders regard Saarlouis as their secret capital. No wonder, as she was already the favorite of the Sun King Louis XIV! He gave his sun symbol for the city’s coat of arms and had the city extended by fortress builder Vauban to secure the northern border of France. Many remains of the fortifications can still be admired today. The well-known old town is the center of the lively city life. Numerous stores and countless cafés await your visit. Immerse yourself in the French flair of Saarlouis.

Villeroy & Boch headquarters

Mettlach is worth a visit in many ways! The Alte Abtei, the headquarters of Villeroy&Boch, is located directly on the banks of the Saar in a beautiful park. The Keravision Museum with its dairy store is particularly worth a visit. Afterwards, we recommend a visit to the parish church of St. Lutwinus (an insider tip for us!) and a stroll through Mettlach town center with its numerous outlets.

City of many faces

Saarbrücken is a city with many faces. The war and the architectural style of the 1950s and 60s have left a lasting mark on them. Today’s result is a brittle beauty with rough edges, heart and character. Its banks are home to a wide variety of districts and neighborhoods. In the mid-18th century, the court architect of the Princes of Nassau-Saarbrücken gave the medieval town complex on both banks of the Saar a baroque look that still characterizes the town today. The Alt-Saarbrücken district has always been a government district. The counts and princes of Nassau-Saarbrücken once resided around the castle and Ludwigskirche church. Today, the regional association, the state parliament, the ministries and the state chancellery are located here. Saarbrücken borders France on the southern edge of the city, just behind the Franco-German Garden.

St. Johann – this is where trade and commerce, art and culture are concentrated. The St. Johanner Markt forms the center with its small stores, restaurants, cafés and pubs. Behind it is the shopping mile and lively pedestrian zone, which stretches all the way to the Europabahnhof station on the northern edge of the city. To the east, the lively and colorful multi-cultural scene quarter Nauwieser Viertel awaits its visitors.
