Look forward to the beautiful Saar with the excellently signposted cycle path. You cycle on flat paths in leisurely daily stages from Saarbrücken to the mouth of the Saar in the Mosel. You begin your cycling trip in Saarbrücken, where French flair can be felt. The region's changing national affiliation has also left its mark on the cuisine. For Saarlanders it is natural to eat snails, prawns or paté, and kir or pastis are very welcome as an aperitif. Try it, you will be amazed. The way to the heart is through the stomach, but you can also gain love for Saarland and the Saar through other highlights of this cycle tour: Visit the Völklinger Hütte world cultural heritage site, marvel at the old fortifications of Saarlouis, enjoy the fantastic view of the Saar loop, follow the Explanations in the Villeroy & Boch experience center in Mettlach and discover the waterfall in Saarburg's old town, which plunges 20 meters over rock cascades in the middle of the city as a unique natural spectacle.

Arrive early to Saarbrücken, it's worth it. Visit the heart of the city: the well-known St. Johann market with its pubs, bistros and restaurants. Our partner hotel in a central location offers good parking facilities, and your rental bikes are already waiting for you here.

Overnight place: Saarbrucken

Look forward to your first day of cycling and initially follow the flat Saar cycle path through the former coal mining area to Völklingen. You definitely have to make a stop here, because the Völklingen Ironworks World Heritage Site is currently one of 33 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Germany! In terms of importance, it is on a par with the Egyptian pyramids, the Great Wall of China, the Cologne Cathedral and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. A visit to the Völklinger Hütte is like an adventure: you go deep into the dark corridors of the Möllerhalle and the climb leads high up to the viewing platform at the blast furnace. Then follow the cycle path to Saarlouis with its old town, which is well worth seeing. The city's former fortress still determines the hexagonal layout of the city center today. Discover the ancient buildings of Vauban and the 19th century fortifications. The city's old ramparts and ditches are now harmoniously integrated into the cityscape and are used by restaurants under the name "casemate", while the water-filled ditches have been integrated into the city's green spaces.

Overnight place: Saarlouis

Today the Saar cycle path takes you first through the beautiful Merziger Land with the typical apple trees before you reach the impressive Saar loop. Swap the bike for hiking boots and walk up to the “Cloef” viewpoint. Only 30 minutes and the view of the Saar loop is simply breathtaking! Hardly back in the saddle, you reach Mettlach, where the Villeroy & Boch visitor center beckons. Thousands of years of cultural history, centuries-long ceramic tradition and pioneering concepts on the subject of “life and living” – you will encounter all of this in an incomparable atmosphere in the Villeroy & Boch experience center, which is well worth seeing.

Overnight place: Mettlach

In the morning you will cycle through a densely wooded area to Saarburg, where the castle towers majestically over the winding streets. Discover the sights of the state-approved resort and marvel at the main attraction: a waterfall in the middle of the city, which falls 20 meters over rock cascades and drives the mill wheels in the valley basin. A sightseeing and café break in the beautiful city center strengthens you for the rest of the cycle path. Guided by the traces of the Romans, you cycle via Konz to Trier. Look forward to an individual tour of the historic city center, the Imperial Baths and the Porta Nigra.
