Glan-Blies-Radweg planned a bike ride.
November 7, 2018
The first leg of the Glan Blies cycle route starts in France at Sarreguemines station, in German "Saargemünd". Here the Blies flows into the Saar, which gave the city its name. Saargemünd is known for its ceramics industry, whose history you can learn all about in the Keramik-Museum. And otherwise, the small town on the border with the Saarland offers plenty of reasons to stay a little longer before you embark on the bike tour.Today's stage is about 36 kilometers long and initially runs mostly on French soil over flat roads and car-free (railway) bike paths. Most of the cozy places along the way carry the "blies" in their name - an unmistakable sign that you're right.On the way you can expect some highlights. The European Cultural Park near Bliesbruck-Reinheim offers exciting insights into the history of the region and the time when the Romans still lived here. The journey along the Blies through the Bliesgau Biosphere Reserve to Gersheim with its strictly protected orchid area is rather idyllic.Stage is the baroque town of Blieskastel, which has a great old town with picturesque half-timbered houses. Here are some hotels and apartments where you can relax after the tour. From the station Blieskastel-Lautzkirchen you have access to the network of the railway.
