Once you leave Sarreguemines you are already in Germany. No license to travel is required. The next step in your journey is to go to Saarbrücken, then you need a sport boat license. Fortunately, the flow of the Saar is normally not too strong, so that the joy of the really beautiful landscape with forests and river bends is not tarnished.
At Saarland Saarbrücken you can reach the beautiful city center in a few steps. In addition to the annual Saar Festival, the city offers many cultural highlights of the country. There are many restaurants and pubs and a farmer's market on saturday. There is also the ancient former ironworks, Völklingen, which since 1994 has been a designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Today, the "Ferrodrom" invites you to take a trip to the old days. This attraction is especially fun for younger crew members. There is a bistro and cafe on site. Gradually nature is reclaiming the coal mines and metallurgical site again.
Merzig is located a few kilometers from the Saar loop. It's walking distance from the marina to the source of Bietzener medicinal water. It's an adventure for all ages.
