In the southwest of Germany, framed between Rhineland-Palatinate, French Lorraine and Luxembourg, lies Saarland. The hilly landscape of the Saarland is crossed by wide forests - overall, the smallest German territorial state has the largest proportion of forest area of all German federal states. The most important landscape feature is of course the meandering course of the Saar near Mettlach. There it has left impressive valley landscapes on its journey through the Saarland. In addition, many small rivers and creeks shape the nature of Saarland. As a hiker you can look forward to walks through charming mixed forests with a particularly high proportion of beech trees and wide meadows as well as the excellent Saarland cuisine with a hint of French grand cuisine.
After all, who doesn't know it: after a good hike, the food just tastes twice as good. That's why we have selected seven 'Tafeltours' (table tours) in the most beautiful natural areas of the Saarland. The special thing about the 'Tafeltours': First you explore the picturesque landscape and then you let yourself be spoiled with the local delicacies in an excellent restaurant.
Be inspired by our tours and embark on a culinary hike through the Saarland.
