Untouched nature, romantic forests, and historical sites – Saarland is a wonderfully varied hiking region. Bordering Luxembourg and France, Saarland may be one of the smallest German states, but it has a huge variety of hiking trails. In this Collection, we’ve put together ten of the most beautiful routes which showcase Saarland’s diversity.

Each hike can be completed in a day, making it convenient to explore the region in your free time. The routes vary in difficulty, although they are mostly fairly relaxed rambles that are ideal for the whole family.

Saarland’s small size makes it convenient to reach the hikes without spending hours driving. Within around 30 miles (50 km) of the state capital Saarbrücken, you can travel back in time and follow in the footsteps of nobility on the Schlossberg near the town of Homburg, follow along the popular Jakobsweg, and venture into thick forests. All of the hikes follow excellent paths where beautiful views over Saarland and beyond the borders are guaranteed. When you are ready for a break, you’ll find plenty of restaurants and cafes en route.

Hikes through Saarland help you to forget your everyday stress and unwind in green nature. The Saarland may be small in terms of area, but its hiking possibilities are endless.
