Saarburg - a waterfall roars in the heart of the town
Saarburg lies in an arc of the Saar River, nestled between vineyards and forests, in the midst of the charming cultural landscape of the Saar-Obermosel holiday region.
High above the Saar and the old town, with its colourful fishermen's and boatmen's houses, towers the SaarBurg - the town's namesake and landmark. Saarburg's picturesque winding lanes with a Mediterranean flair and the historic squares invite you to stroll and linger. The pulsating centre is the Buttermarkt, populated with colourful parasols, tables and chairs from the small restaurants. The view of the pretty houses lined up next to each other and the small stream bridges over the Leukbach is also affectionately called "Saarburg's Little Venice". A magnet for visitors is the imposing waterfall, which plunges 20 metres over rock cascades into the depths in the middle of the town.
"Culture to the power of three" is offered by the municipal museums Hackenberger Mühle and Amüseum am Wasserfall as well as the bell foundry in the old town. The numerous sights of the town can be explored on your own, with a local guide, or comfortably on a round trip with the Saartalbahn. Saarburg also offers other leisure activities, such as boat trips on the Saar or a ride on the chairlift or summer toboggan run. The Panorama Trail leads through the Saarburger Rausch vineyard back to the town. A visit to the bird of prey park allows visitors to experience rare birds of prey up close.
A shopping trip is also worthwhile. The lovingly run small shops are well-stocked and are characterised by a variety of offers and excellent service with individual advice. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
