Roaming through a magical jungle with diverse plant life; exploring a prehistoric fortification surrounded by untouched nature; discovering lonely places that are slowly being reclaimed by Mother Earth. If you like exploring wild and abandoned places on foot, then consider planning your next hiking trip in Saarland. This small state in the west of Germany has countless special places – you just have to find them.

To guide you to these hidden corners, we’ve put together this Collection for you. These hikes take you through overgrown landscapes, beautiful forests and natural wonders. Here, mass tourism is a distant reality – it will just be you, your hiking equipment and the wilderness. Every now and again, you find an idyllic place for a pitstop on the banks of a lake or with a view over the landscape, where you can tuck in the picnic you brought with you.

Although the hikes are different lengths and difficulty levels, they are all designed as day trips. Some of them are also suitable for families. They are also easy to reach without spending a whole day in the car. The best bit? Each and every hike takes you out of everyday life and immerses you in Saarland’s fantastic nature. Enjoy!
