It was such a beautiful day that we decided to take a day trip into Germany. I just found out about Saarland and all it’s beauty the night before our trip and was astounded at all that was so nearby us in Luxembourg. We haven’t really explored Germany as much as I’d like but we had such a great time with this trip. And, it was only a 35-minute drive.
Baumwipfelpfad Saarschleife is just breathtaking. It is a treetop walk to a high tower that is 42 meters tall. Once you reach the top you see a beautiful view of Naturpark Saar-Hunsruck as well as the banks of the Saar and Mosel rivers. We first had lunch at the Bistro Mirabell onsite, and it was amazing food and very well priced compared to Luxembourg restaurants. Then we walked the treetop walkway up to the tower. It was magnificent.
When we came down we went to the edge of the Cloef to watch the barges on the river and then took the meandering path down the hill. The hike down was not for the faint of heart. It just kept going and going, snaking through the trees. It was quite beautiful and picturesque despite there being no leaves on the trees. We were all exhausted when we made it down and then we had to trudge back up. Wow was it a hike, but well worth it. In total we walked about 10 km of beauty. Myself and Luca look forward to going back again and exploring more of Saarland.
