Nature & greenery

Saarbrücken River Saar, copyright Kongress- und Touristik Service Region Saarbrücken GmbH
Parks and gardens in the town and along the banks of the river Saar provide a wealth of places for relaxation and leisure activities. The Franco-German Garden right on the border with France is especially attractive.
Franco-German Garden
This 50 hectare park is a recreation and entertainment area that appeals to all the family. A ride in the cable car gives visitors a good view of the individual themed gardens. There is an extensive network of paths around the Deutschmühlenweiher ponds and "Gulliver's World" with miniature copies of lots of famous buildings for children.
Saarland University Botanical Gardens
More than 3,000 plant varieties can be seen in 2.5 hectares of gardens and a number of glasshouses. The outdoor area includes an alpine garden, arboretum, rose garden and ponds, whilst tropical and subtropical plants are grown in the glasshouses.
Staden park
A stroll along the river Saar towards Staden takes you past grand late-19th century villas and green spaces. A linear park with beer gardens and play areas, it is a relaxing place to spend time in summer and the towpath on the river bank is ideal for roller-blading, jogging and cycling.
