Breathtaking view

You need to see this if you are in the area as it is something you will not forget or regret we went in the rain and I didn't spoil it all in fact the mist made it even better

Not as good as the shoe horse bend in Utah (US), but a little closer by and nice to see. Park like, trails available.

Spectacular views over the Saar river bend and forests. The viewpoint itself is situated in a woodland park with lots of forest walks and there is a nearby car park with toilet facilities. We stayed at the nearby Landhotel Saarschleife from where it was an easy 15 min walk downhill. There were lots of other visitors but somehow it doesn't... More

Impressive view, quiet peaceful place despite quite a few visitors/tourists. Worth the visit if you are in the area. Lovely drive through countryside to get to the look out. Next time will bring hiking boots and try the trails. You could easily spend a day here hiking what are clearly marked trails.

Only 10min drive from Mettlach, this is something you should make time to go and see. This is something unique to see.

There are very nice walking-routes throughout a lovely forest. The view at the Saarschleife itself is a must... beautiful!

We hiked a section of Saar-Hunsrück-Steig, one of Germany's top trails. Challenging most of the time and breathtaking all the time. This is not a trail for tennis shoes. We left from the opposite side of Mettlach, crossed the bridge, and were quickly ascending. We also did the descent from Saarscleife. Great single tracking.

I have been visiting this area since 2006, and on every trip I make a visit to the Saarschleife. A beautiful view over the countryside and across to Burg Montclair ( if you look very closely). If you're feeling up to it, there are hiking trails all the may down from the top to river level. A great view of... More
