Tips

    Waterfall in Saarburg. From the iron bridge, one can observe the water masses of the Leukbach, which plunge into the depth of 20 m in the middle of the city over the rock cascade. Everywhere beautiful houses, small bridges, towers. City tour through Saarburg is highly recommended.

    From the medieval castle with its surface of 137 by 50 meters, there are still remains of the surrounding walls and a Romanesque residential tower, originally a three-storey Festes house, in the later a round keep was built. The residential tower has a nearly square floor plan (13 x 15 meters), has a wall thickness of 1.5 meters and a height of 14 meters. The keep has a diameter of seven meters and is about 21.5 meters high with the covered staircase. Its high entrance is at a height of about four meters. From here a wooden spiral staircase leads to the 15.5 meter high viewing platform. The ruin is freely accessible and offers from the keep a good view of Saarburg and the Saar Valley.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saarburg_(Burg)

    The longer but more comfortable ascent leads over the access road to the castle. A little more strenuous, but because of the many views of the city and the river, the climb up the stairs that begin at the roundabout below the castle ruins is much nicer.

    One should go to the tower, very narrow and dark
