Nestled between beautiful vineyards and woods, the town of Saarburg has a thousand years of history and a number of highly interesting sights for you to explore. A five-minute walk along the Saar River through a quaint area of town called “Little Venice” will take you to the picturesque historic centre with its impressive waterfall, which used to power the millwheels at the bottom of the valley. This is where the Amüseum, the museum of mills, is located today. The old Saarburg Castle, towering on a hill above Saarburg, was built in 964 by Siegfried of Luxembourg and adds to the beauty of the town.
Let Saarburg captivate you with its many little alleys and colourful fishermen and skippers’ houses that radiate an air of Southern European charm. Be sure to visit the traditional bell foundry, another highlight in Saarburg, which actively manufactured brass bells until 2002.
Follow the romantic Saar River to experience the natural beauty of the region around Saarburg. The river is lined with hilly vineyards, lush meadows and woods abundant with wildlife.
Culture aficionados will enjoy taking day trips to nearby Luxembourg, Metz (France) or Germany’s oldest city of Trier.
