    If you hike in Saarland, you simply can't avoid this tour: The table tour to the Saarschleife takes you to the most famous vantage point in Germany's smallest country.From Mettlach you follow the signposted table tour over the ridge surrounded by the Saar to the romantically situated Montclair Castle. Here you not only enjoy the fantastic view of the surrounding Saar Valley, but also little things in the castle's own bistro.Then it goes downhill to the bank of the Saar on the inside of the Saar loop. The wooded slopes rise above you on both sides. It goes a bit along the shore until you reach the ferry dock.With the tiny and, above all, last safari ferry, it goes over to the other bank - the crossing only takes a few minutes. But be careful if you hike on Mondays: Then the ferry is closed unless it is a public holiday.On the other bank you then hike uphill through the romantic Steinbachtal and on to the Cloef Saar loop view. After the ascent, you've earned a break: Just a few minutes' walk away, Buchnas Landhotel Saarschleif invites you to stop for a break - alternatively, you can stay overnight in the modernly renovated hotel and start the dinner tour here. You can find all information at, with a great view of the Saar valley, you continue over the ridge and finally leisurely downhill to the lookout point in Mettlach.
