Tourism & Culture
Merzig is the home of Viez, the traditional Saarland cider, and the capital of the “green district” of Merzig-Wadern.
It’s so close to neighbouring countries France and Luxembourg that their influences are noticeable everywhere. This makes Merzig a true European town that is open to the world and has the charm of three cultures.
But the location and history of the town also provide visitors with lots of points of interest. These include eight centuries of architecture, attractive scenery with excellent walks and exceptional cycle routes, the unique Werner Freund Wolf Park in Kammerforst, the Bietzen spa with its “Stone and Plants on the Water” sculptures, sophisticated yet down-to-earth food and drink, and DAS BAD – a spa experience in a modern, relaxing atmosphere.
With its attractive location in the Merzig Basin directly on the Saar river, surrounded by the Saargau hills, Merzig is the ideal place for cultural activities and recreation in a green, natural environment. Take advantage of our packages and offers and discover the many endearing aspects of our town. We look forward to your visit!
