Saar Canal: From Niderviller to Saargemünd
The Saar Canal, with a length of just over sixty kilometres, connects the Rhine-Marne Canal with the Saar at Saargemünd (Sarreguemines). Its towpath is a well-developed cycle path that takes you quickly to the bathing places at the lakes along the canal. Nestled between meadows, forests, small ponds, large lakes and sleepy villages, the canal winds its way leisurely through Alsace-Lorraine. The Saar flows parallel to the canal for a long time until Saargemünd - and because its river bed is lower, it offers beautiful views. Between locks 29 and 28 of the Saar Canal lies the estuary basin of the Blies and Saar with a beautiful view of Saargemünd (Sarreguemines) and a small marina. This marina is located directly in front of the magnificent "Casino", a building built for the workers of the stoneware factory and decorated with ceramic paintings.
