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.

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.
