Sarrebourg (German: Saarburg, Lorraine Franconian: Saarbuerj) is a commune in the Moselle department in Lorraine in north-eastern France. It lies in on the upper course of the river Sarre.

It should not be confused with Saarburg in Germany.

In 1895 a Mithraeum was discovered at Sarrebourg at the mouth of the pass leading from the Vosges Mountains.
