On the Saar Cycle Route, you accompany the Saar on its way from France through the Saarland to its mouth in the Moselle. You cycle through the picturesque valleys of the river, lined by wooded slopes and rugged rocks. As you go, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Saar, follow its uniquely beautiful loops, immerse yourself in the nature that lines its banks and discover pretty towns and villages such as Saarbrücken, Saarlouis or Merzig.
The family-friendly Saar cycle path meanders 62 miles (110 kilometers) from Saargemünd in France to Konz on the Moselle. In this Collection, we show you how you can cycle the long-distance cycle path in three stages, each of which is between 18 and 25 miles (30 and 40 kilometers) long. Depending on your fitness level or how much time you have, you can cycle the Saar cycle path in fewer or more stages.
The almost completely flat route usually runs directly along the banks of the Saar – this means that you can look forward to a beautiful route, find many places to stop for refreshments and have numerous overnight accommodations to choose from along the cycle path. As a railway line runs parallel to the Saar, public transport connections are also unrivaled here, so you can change to the train at any time if you want to shorten your journey or if the weather doesn't play along. You can also reach Saargemünd, the starting point of the cycle path, and Konz, the destination, comfortably by train.
And if at the end of your bike ride you're not quite ready to call it a say, you can simply continue on the Moselle Cycle Route, which crosses here: komoot.com/collection/438/the-moselle-cycle-path-from-the-vosges-to-the-rhine-in-18-stages
