The little Venice of Germany

Saarburg is beautifully located at the banks of the Saar River and in the centre of the renowned wine region of the Saar. The town is a medieval jewel at the foot of Saarburg fortress towering above the Saar River. A roaring waterfall in the middle of its picturesque Old Town, with small bridges and elaborate half-timbering facades, make the special charm of Saarburg. The ‘piazza’ on top of the waterfall gives Saarburg a little Venetian magic. Below are the narrow, steep alleyways to the quarters of the sailors and fishermen that settled in the lower city on the banks of the river. There is a lot to discover.
