Holiday in Saarland

By | August 18, 2022


The state capital of Saarland

With around 180,000 inhabitants, Saarbrücken is the largest city in the small Saarland.

Here are some great sights such as the St. Johann town hall, the Saarbrücken Castle and the Ludwigskirche.

A walk through the old town is also worthwhile.

It is also not far from Saarbrücken to our neighboring country France.

St. Wendel

Cute small town in the district of the same name

With around 26,000 inhabitants , St. Wendel is not large, but it is still a real pearl in the Saarland.

According to Electronicsmatter, the city was even listed as one of the twelve most beautiful city gems in Germany by GEO magazine .

The historic old town and the mission house are particularly worth seeing .

St. Wendel is very close to the border with Rhineland-Palatinate .


District town in North Saarland

The small town of Merzig is not far from the border triangle of Germany , Luxembourg and France.

The city is located directly on the Saar, on which you can do a canoe tour, among other things.

A beautiful sight in Merzig is the parish church of St. Peter.

Highlights in the Saarland

Saar loop

The top sight of the Saarland

Just a few kilometers from Merzig is probably the most beautiful sight in the whole of Saarland: the Saar loop.

You have a particularly great view from the Cloef vantage point or the Saarschleife treetop path.

By the way, there is also a Saar loop, namely near the village of Hamm. She’s not quite as well known, but actually just as beautiful.

Völklingen Ironworks

Completely preserved blast furnace plant

The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Germany.

A trip to the first industrial monument from the beginning of industrialization is totally exciting and fascinating.

You can also take great photos here.

Schlossberg cave Homburg

Schlossberg cave Homburg

There used to be sand dunes here

The city of Homburg is located in the far east of Saarland .

And in Homburg’s Schlossberg there is another very cool attraction: Europe’s largest red sandstone caves.

Here you traverse exciting corridors with sandstone in red and yellow tones .
