December 4, 2018
From Remich you start along the Mosel in the sixth stage on the Saarland bike path. Without any incline, you will roll over the scenic cycle path and have around ten kilometers to enjoy your relaxed warm-up program. If you reach the small town of Schengen, which is very well-known because of the Schengen Agreement, it may be worth stopping for a moment at the European Monument, before starting a long climb, which will take you to the hills of the Saargau with its picturesque orchards. Here you can rest in the shade of the trees and enjoy a natural snack in the form of apples, cherries or plums.Now begins a long, enjoyable passage through meadows and fields and with a peppy up and down - the "Ab" outweighs, so you relax the beautiful Niedtal reach. Right on the river there is a wonderfully located restaurant, where you can strengthen yourself and listen to the sound of the water.In the further course you always cycle along the border with France. At Berus, on the summit of Linsenhübel, you reach the 16 meter high Europadenkmal, from where you can enjoy the sweeping view of Saarland and France. Then you roll through the shady Baruser forest down to the stage destination Überherrn, where there are a few places to stay and a campsite and an outdoor pool. There is no rail connection in Überherrn.This stage runs mainly along the German-French border. The area is very sparsely populated and along the bike path there are hardly any accommodations, which is why this stage is a little longer. If the stage is too long for you, you can take the Niedtal bike path in Hemmersdorf. About the beautiful path you get to Siersdorf or Dillingen, where there are many accommodations. The tour is shortened to about 50 kilometers and you save some altitude. The next day you can drive back over the Niedtal-Radweg and follow the Saarland cycle path again. Alternatively you can cycle from Dillingen on the Saar cycle path to Saarbrücken.
