As part of Saarland, Homburg has spent many years during the 20th century seperated from Germany. The small state wedged between Luxembourg and France was hotly contested after both world wars because of its large coal industry. The most exciting monument that traces the industrial heritage of the Saarland is the Völklinger Hütte in Saarbrücken. It is an old ironworks that was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1994. There is also the miningmuseum in Bexbach very near to Homburg.
Saarbrücken is the capital of the Saarland and lies some 35km to the southwest of Homburg. It is the cultural centre of the Saarland and most museums and monuments can be found there.
