When you leave Sarreguemines you are already in Germany. There is no boating license required. The next step on your journey is Saarbrücken, there you need a sport boat license. Fortunately, the flow of the Saar is normally not too strong, as a result the joy of the really beautiful landscape with forests and river bends is not tarnished.
In 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 during the year. There are many restaurants and pubs and a farmer's market on saturday. There is also the ancient former ironworks, which has been a designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1994. Today, the "Ferrodrom" invites you to make a special trip. 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. The walking distance from the marina to the source of Bietzener medicinal water is very short. It's an adventure for all ages.
