Stoneware city Niderviller

Just behind the German-French border is an area that literally connects the two European countries. It is not only the history and culture of the region that have been  determined by Germany and France but also many similarities were developed. The rivers and canals provide with its remarkable water buildings still represent a living connection between the countries. Since German is spoken almost everywhere, this area is especially interesting  for German-speaking customers.

In the Marina Niderviller at the Rhine-Marne canal you will find a boat and crew service, which is rarely available in the region of Alsace-Lorraine. In addition to the water moorings, there is a winter storage for boats and a crane together with a diesel gas station. The sanitary facilities are completely built after modern standards. The sanitary modules consist of washing machines and dryers, a handicapped accessible bathroom and separate bathrooms for men and women. Everything is located in a habour house with an attached shipyard hall. The marina is located at the edge of the town Niderviller.

Right next to the marina is a restaurant. Sarrebourg is a town that offers excellent shopping opportunities: it is home to most of the major french supermarkets, the factory outlet of a renowned shoe manufacturer and , of course, cosy bars and restaurants.
