Cyclist having a refreshing break
This is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys walking in beautiful countryside, dense woodland and gently rolling hills, or whose idea of fun involves being in or on the water. All manner of water-based activities and sports can be enjoyed on Saarland's lakes, rivers and reservoirs. It's the ideal location for a wellness break or family holiday. Visitors can look forward to a colourful mix of culture and history, and sports ranging from golf to mountain-biking.

St. Wendeler Land region with the picturesque Lake Bostalsee is not only paradise for cyclists who like a bit of a challenge, but is also perfect for walking, golf, blading or water sports.

Saarlouis is a mecca for all keen sportsmen and women, with aerosports in Wallerfangen-Düren, climbing in Ensdorf, blading in Saarlouis and karting in Bous.

The Saargau is a ridge to the west of the Saar, where grapes have been grown since Roman times. This Triassic limestone landscape is intensively cultivated, with crop fields and orchards containing hundreds of thousands of fruit trees covering the land. This is the true taste of the Saargau.
