Relax in the countryside
Around one third of the region is covered with mixed deciduous forest. For the smallest region, this represents a significant proportion of the total forest area of the Federal Republic. A hiking highlight is the Saar-Hunsrück trail, which was voted the most beautiful trail in Germany in 2009. It lies in the large Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park, which at more than 2,000 square kilometres is not only one of the ten largest natural parks in Germany, but also one of the most species-rich.
Where to start and finish
The Blies valley is best explored from the Bliesgau leisure trail. The 16-kilometre route has a magic attraction for skaters, bikers and hikers.
