Neat old castle ruin with an intact tower to climb for viewing the Saar river valley and surrounding area. Quite a hike up so be sure to wear your comfortable shoes. The view from the top is marvelous.

A very nice walk up to this ruin. Walk up the tower for an even better view. A good time to go would be early so as to not be in a crowd.

Saarburg Castle is located on a strategically favorable mountain ridge between the Rivers Saar and Leuk above the town with the same name. It is beautiful place to visit.

Worth the little climbing. The view is breathtaking. One can go up by car and then there is a little climb. There is a memorial for the dead of three wars, including WW2 composed of three combined crosses.

I enjoyed the ever changing view as I climbed up to the castle. At the castle itself there isnt much to see or to do, but the view over the city, the Saar and the wineyards is amazing. There is also a nice restaurant beside...More
