History and profile
It was first published as a weekly journal in 1761 under the title Nassau-Saarbrückisches Wochenblatt (Nassau-Saarbrücken Weekly). After several changes in name and frequency, it appeared since 1861 under its current title. After the Saar Treaty in 1956, the Saarland state became its owner. It was privatized in 1969; the paper's major owner (56.1%) is the Georg von Holtzbrinck Publishing Group.
In 2001, Saarbrücker Zeitung received the Konrad Adenauer Foundation Prize for Local Journalism.
