Next to France, you will not only find mellow hills and an enchanted scenery but also first-class cooking and selected wines. This seven-day cycling tour will take you all round the Saarland to discover the region’s variety and charm. Look forward to a fascinating route with different landscapes including forests, orchard meadows, vineyards as well as idyllic rivers and lakes.
At the end of each day you will be rewarded with an outstanding meal and spend the night in a bike-friendly hotel. Try typical dishes of the region or wine and dine in style.
Tour desription First leg: Saarbrücken – Mettlach, approx. 37.5 miles/60 km This first section of the tour will take you along the Saar from Saarbrücken to Mettlach.

Once you have reached your destination Mettlach, go and visit the world-famous ceramics manufacturer Villeroy & Boch with its “Keravision“ exhibition displaying the company’s history stretching back over 250 years.
Second leg: Mettlach – Perl, approx. 28 miles/45 km On day two you will cycle along orchard meadows on the Saarland cycling route until you reach the wine village of Perl.

Dinner will be a gourmet menu – yes, another one – with four-courses and a champagne cocktail.
Sixth leg: Kirkel – Saarbrücken, approx. 34 miles/55km This is your last day, leading through the picturesque Bliesgau region. If you fancy a short trip over to France, just cycle over to Sarreguemines and then take the Saarbahn train to Saarbrücken.
