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.

This a small lovely caste with beautiful view to Saar river and surroundings from its tower. You can chose from several trails either from river side or from the down town. All of them are romantic and offer beautiful views to surroundings. I enjoyed.

A simple ruined castle with free entry and information boards in multiple languages. Limited opening restaurant available. Climb the narrow stairs in the tower for lovely 360 degrees view of the surrounding area.
