 Saarschleife

The Saarschleife is a breakthrough valley of the River Saar through the quartzite hills of the Taunus. The River Saar has carved its way into the rock over millions of years, creating a breath-taking nature experience. 

The Saarschleife begins shortly after the Merzig district of Besseringen and ends in Mettlach. Besseringen and Mettlach are only two kilometres apart as the crow flies, but the River Saar winds its way around the mountain ridge for almost 10 kilometres. Montclair Castle stands on the wooded ridge within the Saarschleife.
