  • The origin of Lorquin is unclear. The first written mention in the form of Launarigo back to the year 699. This date appears in the cartulary of the abbey of Wissembourg who owned property.

  • At the same time, Haussonville, lords of Turquestein, granted the first franchise to residents of Lorquin and they built the castle Zufall or Hazard. Probably destroyed during the Thirty Years War, it was purchased in 1720 by Marc de Beauvau Craon Prince, to which Leopold had donated the baronies of St. George and Turquestein. Rebuilt in 1785, burned in 1946, all that remains of this building, the gate of the property (on the road Abreschviller) and a rare and curious sundial sandstone, formed a column supporting a dodecahedron inscribed on all sides and reassembled at the College of Saarland Lorquin 2.
