Having seen the magnificent horseshoe bend of the Colorado river, near the Grand Canyon I did not think I would see another bend like that. Wrong! This bend on the River Saar is just as good and breathtaking. The walk through the woods from the car park is very pleasant and not too long. Disabled access is possible without too... More

I believe one of the great views in Europe! Easy to access from Parkings nearby, great walking in the surroundings till you arrive at the promontory to this landscape! Very good to Sports, running and cycling, and leisure for family with Kids.

The Saarschleife is a unique natural phenomenon, spectacular and unusual. Saar River is winding, creating a bend of 180 degrees between wooded green hills. You should reach the observation point on Cloef in a nice day, even you have to walk a distance of about a kilometer from the parking lot, to enjoy the spectacular scenery, to breathe the clear...

You have a wonderful view from the "cleouf" viewing Point. From Mettlach the viewing Point is only 7km away. From the viewing Point is`s also only 35km to the City Luxembourg.

Stand up the hill and look down onto this lazy meander and think where it came from and where it is going . . .

It is a beautiful view of the horseshue turn of the Saar river. Full of tourists. 10 minutes is sufficient.

I have been Saarland in 2011 and stayed in little village with my family and our German friends. They took us to Saarschleife and Volklingen. I like Saarschleife most. After parking your car on parking lot of Saarschleife you reach there by passing a big forest. It was autumn when we were here so forest was looking like a painting.... More

The view of the Saarschleife is the most recognized photo for Saarland Tourism. But fact is when you actually go there and walk through the lush forests to the look out that is part of the experience. The view is spectacular but take in the national park and its amazing trees and wildlife, not just the view.

Well worth the walk but not for the elderly or infirm. The car park has been moved much further away than it was.
