The tour starts in Sarreguemines, where the Blies flows into the Saar. The long-distance cycle route then heads upstream to the river Glan. It's then not far to the Roman and Celtic excavations at the European Archaeological Park in Bliesbruck-Reinheim. As the tour continues there are plenty more good reasons to stop off. Among them are caves, a recreation area, castles and a railbike track. You can also follow in the footsteps of Hildegard von Bingen shortly before the end of the tour at the ruins of Disibodenberg Abbey. In the Nahe winegrowing country the river Glan joins the river Nahe at Staudernheim. Terrain: the long-distance cycle route runs from France across the border into Germany and on through the Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate. Mainly asphalt and low-traffic paths through predominantly flat countryside. Scenery: the route traverses the riverscapes of the Glan and Blies. Narrow valleys alternate with broad river meadows, forests and vineyards.
