The Saarland is also on the sixth stage of the Saarland cycle path varied and hilly - so you'll be challenged today, but also regularly richly rewarded. Wonderful views and exciting sights make up for any effort.From Losheim you drive on small roads and gravel roads through a shady forest area, through which you come to Mettlach, where you meet the Saar. The entire border area from Saarland to France is known for its ceramics industry - here in Mettlach you can visit one of the most famous companies. Here is the headquarters of Villeroy and Boch and the associated experience center, where you can learn all about the company and the ceramic production in Saarland. After this history lesson, the following scenic section along the Saar is perfect for organizing your thoughts and simply enjoying nature.Downstream from Mettlach you reach the Rhineland-Palatinate border at Taben-Rodt. You leave the river and reach after a steep ascent to the border triangle Germany / France / Luxembourg with its picturesque vineyards. Once again the Romans liked it a long time ago - in Nennig you can admire the largest and best preserved Roman mosaic north of the Alps. From here it is not far to the destination Remich. Here you have the choice whether you want to spend the night on the German side, or cross the Moselle and sleep in Luxembourg. There are plenty of accommodations, including two bed + bike hotels, for which you have to cross the border.Remich itself has no train connection, if you still want to continue your journey by train, you have from Nennig from connection to Trier.
