December 4, 2018
The first leg of the Saarland cycle path starts in the state capital of Saarbrücken. Saarbrücken is rich in cultural highlights and sights, so it's well worth planning some time in advance. Maybe you want to visit the theater on the evening before the tour or check out the Saarbrücken Castle and the picturesque city center with its historic buildings, the beautiful market and the many small shops and restaurants before you pedal.The first stage of the tour is marked by the German-French border area and the rivers Saar and Blies, whose course you follow mostly. You can look forward to a relaxing ride through the beautiful river meadows, which will entice you with great scenery and a fairly flat course. Sarreguemines offers a first stop. The beautiful city on the Saar with its great Art Nouveau buildings is definitely worth a visit.It becomes particularly idyllic in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau, which you will pass on the way to the stage destination Blieskastel. Here you cycle for long stretches on a Bahntrassenradweg, far from the traffic in the midst of beautiful nature, where storks feel particularly well. Maybe you discover one of the stork nests and stop to watch Master Adebar for a while.In the beautiful old town of Blieskastel you can treat yourself to a delicious ice cream or a rich dinner on the market square, before you rest in one of the numerous accommodations (one of which is even awarded the ADFC seal "bed + bike").Both Saarbrücken and Blieskastel (station Blieskastel Lautzenkirchen) have a rail connection and are easily accessible, so you relaxed to the starting point to Saarbrücken come and the tour can also drive individually.
