      Feel like the king (or queen) of the world - you can do that on the Berghalde Duhamel near Ensdorf. With a footprint of almost 50 hectares and a height of 150 meters, it is one of the largest of its kind, is a popular starting point for paragliders and has a very special surprise for its visitors on its “top”.There are several ways to the heap. Yours starts at the gates of the sports center in Ensdorf. From here, signs lead to the mountain pile. You can hike up either clockwise or counterclockwise. On the way you will meet beautiful viewpoints and even a place where the famous Ensdorfer sunbed is grown.As soon as you reach the highest point of the tour, the surprise mentioned at the beginning opens up before you: The impressive, 30-meter-high Saar polygon was built to commemorate the coal industry. The idea to symbolize the change in the region has clearly succeeded, because depending on where you look at the monument, it always looks different. And best of all: you can also walk on it and enjoy an amazing view from above. Then the signposted path leads you back to the starting point.

      Water march: Along the Ensheimer Brunnenweg you will pass several bubbling fountains, which offer a welcome cool down, especially on a hot summer day. The ten kilometer long circular route near the state capital shows you one of the most idyllic valleys in the Saarbrücken region, which is popularly known as Ensheimer Gelösch. The Wogbach flows through the shady mixed forest through the picturesque valley. The round starts at the hiking car park Wogbachtal in Saarbrücken-Ensheim.The inhabitants of the surrounding villages built 13 fountains in this valley between 1840 and 1980 and designed them artistically. It is not known why they did this. The hikers are happy about it today.

      It gets wild on this ten kilometer long dream loop: on the Wolfsweg you can observe the mystical animals in the Wolf Park near Merzig. Lie in wait in the lookout tower and watch the wolves roam the fenced area. In addition to this special highlight, idyllic landscapes, wildly romantic gorges and a great view await you on the circular hike. And since the Wolf Park is at the starting point of the hike, you can continue to watch the wolves after the kilometers you have mastered.

      On the Hubertus tour, fantastic landscape views of the valley of the Prims and the Nonnweiler dam await you. You hike along narrow paths through old beech trees, along the banks of the idyllic prims and below the summit of the Kahlenberg on wonderful forest paths through the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park. The ten-kilometer circular hike starts at the Hochwaldbad in Nonnweiler.The view of the reservoir, which is surrounded by dense forest, is particularly beautiful. Shortly before Otzenhausen a short detour into the Keltenpark is worthwhile. In the lovingly designed open-air museum, you can see how the Celts once lived in the region.

      The hut trail is a wonderfully varied hiking trail over field and meadow paths and through shady forests. And as the name suggests, several huts await you along the twelve-kilometer circuit. An enjoyable hike with great rest areas and a wonderful landscape. The starting point is the parking lot at the Oberwürzbachhalle.A particularly beautiful place along the way is the pond at Oberwürzbach. After a relaxing break on the water, you can discover the cave in the Eichertsfelsen nearby. You should also plan a longer break at the Hochscheid farm. For example, jazz concerts take place regularly at the Demeterhof with hiking hut.

      There are many myths and legends surrounding the Kaltensteine, two huge boulders on Hoxberg. One of them is that there is a huge cave under the stones, in which a large treasure is hidden, but which is guarded by dwarves.Dive into the dense forest on this almost eight kilometer circular hike. On the way, you can get an insight into the world of geology, and you will also pass a number of historical sites, such as the former horse drink. The starting point is the sports and leisure center in Lebach. Let yourself be enchanted by the special atmosphere around the Kaltensteine and keep your eyes open. Maybe you will meet a benevolent dwarf who will tell you more about the treasure.
