Etappe 7: Von Überherrn nach Saarbrücken – Saarland-Radweg
Bike Touring Highlight
Saarland-Radweg planned a bike ride.
December 6, 2018
The seventh stage of the Saarland cycle path starts in the tranquil town of Überherrn and continues to follow the course of the German-French border. Through the shaded warndtwald you cycle uphill and downhill and enjoy once again the peace and seclusion of the sparsely populated border area. Here and there a sleepy village or a beautiful vantage point invite you to take a break.Then it slowly gets livelier: You reach Völklingen, where the bike path meets the Saar again. The sight of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte is impressive. Here you can enjoy deep insights in the dark corridors of the gigantic industrial site and, at the top of the blast furnace observation deck, wide views and learn all about the eventful history of the former ironworks. From here it is not far to the destination Saarbrücken, which marks the end of our journey on the Saarland cycle path. The drive there is pure pleasure, because you cycle along a cycle path directly along the banks of the Saar.In Saarbrücken the circle closes. On seven stages you drove through the Saarland and got to know it in all its facets. Now you are back at the starting point of the tour arrived. The beautiful parks or the many cozy old town cafés of the state capital invite you to rest, and to let the last days pass in peace, before you make your way home.
