The path meanders around 800 meters through beech, oak and Douglas fir, reaching a height of 23 meters. Once here, the path winds its way over the treetops up into the air and ends in the 42-meter-high observation tower, which offers a breathtaking view of the Saarschleife valley. The view opens onto the green hills of the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park and, on a clear day, even as far as the Vosges. The maximum gradient of 6% also enables wheelchair users, families with prams and people with walking difficulties to easily cope with the 20 meters of altitude.
One of the most beautiful premium hiking areas in the Saarland extends around the Saarschleife.

Only the 42-meter-high observation tower, which opened in 2016, enables a complete overview of the Saar loop, including the river's turning point directly below.
So far I only knew the Saar loop from photos. But in real life the view of the long breakthrough valley of the Saar is absolutely overwhelming. In any case, it is worthwhile to "screw up" the observation tower pas à pas via the treetop path in order to be able to view the entire arch of the Saar loop.
