Saalfeld is a large city located in Southern Thedas within the region of Ferelden and historically controlled by the Kingdom of Ferelden and the Empire of Tevinter, but has recently been taken by the Kingdom of Lucerne. Saalfeld was once a regional capital but the rise of the eastern Ferelden fortress of Dongret would lead to the lessening of the importance of Saalfeld and this was completed when the Ferelden monarchy led their court to Dongret and left the larger Saalfed behind. Saalfeld is like the rest of Ferelden a heavily Dragonoph population, but unlike the capital of Dongret the city of Saalfeld was the site of a large campaign by the Tevinter Chantry to expand their religion, and thus it has a large number of Chantry Temples, and a growing Chantry population though it is still much smaller then the Dragonoph population.

Saalfeld was the first true city of Ferelden and was the site where the Kingdom of Ferelden was founded from, and even with the early rise of Denarim as a port the city of Saalfeld stood as the most important site in Ferelden. Following the Tevinter capture of Ferelden it was deemed by the royal family that the position of Saalfeld had led to be able to be easily captured, and thus they moved the seat of their family, and the capital of Ferelden to the city and castle of Dongret of which severely weakened the position of Saalfeld.
