Tips

  • Hunsbuckel

    The tree top path, a monumental wood / steel structure, has been standing at the Cloef (= cliff) of the Saar loop, on which you can slowly walk from a visitor center on high plank paths up to a viewing platform towering 42m above the Cloef.
    From here you have an optimal overview of the entire Saar loop.
    Dizziness: medium.
    Admission adults € 10 / person

    With a total length of 1,250 meters and a height of 3 to 23 meters, the treetop path meanders through beeches, oaks and Douglas firs towards the Saarschleife - past numerous learning and adventure stations.

    The path and the observation tower are designed to be barrier-free and family-friendly. A maximum gradient of 6% enables wheelchairs and strollers to drive up.

    From the lookout tower, you have a very nice view of the Saarschleife. A visit is only recommended.

    The view from the top is gigantic, but of course it is also very touristy.

    Not only the view from the Cloef on the Saar loop is a nice experience at different times of the day and year.
    You should also explore the area on foot or by bike and collect many new impressions.

    The Treetop Walk Saarschleife is a 1250 meter long treetop walk in Orscholz, a district of the municipality of Mettlach. It was erected in July 2016. Located above the Cloef, you can watch the Saar loop from here.
    The Pfelpfad leads from the Cloef atrium to a lookout tower that was built above the Cloef lookout point. The path is at a height of up to 23 meters and has a minimum width of 2.5 meters. Four didactic stations are incorporated into the path. These provide information about quartzite, the beech forest, the Saar loop and dead wood. A Rialto bridge and a slide have been incorporated for children. A special attraction is the 42 meter high observation tower with a 70 square meter platform. The way up is via serpentines with quiet areas. The path is completely barrier-free and only has a maximum gradient of 6%.

    The path meanders for 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.Source: urlaub.saarland/Media/Attraktionen/Baumwipfelpfad-Saarschleife#/article/a7df9c22-4c19-42f9-92f3-1ba556c08e86
