City tour Saarburg
Saarburg is a town located on the romantic banks of the river Saar surrounded by vineyards and forests. Many sights attract guests from afar. The main attraction is the impressive waterfall which can be heard from far way with its roaring and gushing. In the middle of the town, the peaceful river flow turns into a magnificent spectacle of nature, crashing over 20 m of mighty rock cascades into the depth and turning the mill wheels in the valley basin. Colourful parasols, tables and chairs of the restaurants surround the pulsing centre of the waterfall.
People with time to spend are quickly enchanted by the narrow, winding streets with Mediterranean flair, by “Saarburg’s Little Venice” with its delicate and detailed bridges over the Leukbach, the picturesque old town with its colourful fishermen’s cottages and boatman’s houses, and the bell foundry below the mighty castle.
In addition to the many sites, Saarburg also offers extensive leisure activities. For example, boat round trips on the Saar, city tours with the Saartalbahn, rides on the summer toboggan run or the chairlift in lofty heights.
The flight demonstrations in the Greifvogelpark (bird of prey park) also promise a special experience.
