Discover the landscape by bike
Merzig is an excellent starting point for extensive cycle tours – around the Saar loop, from the Saar to the Nahe, to the Mosel, or on the varied routes along the Viez road.
In addition to the regional SAARLAND cycle route and the Saar cycle route, the Merzig municipal authority in conjunction with regional tourist board Dreiländereck-Touristik GmbH (now known as Saarschleifenland) offers five circular cycle routes, all starting from the Saarfürst brewery in Merzig sport and leisure park or at Merzig civic centre.

DAS BAD charging station
DAS BAD provides a free electric bike charging station during the swimming pool opening hours.
The charging station is part of the Pedelec Willkommen project. The Saarland branch of the German Transport Club (VCD) and Saarland Tourism hope that the project will improve services for electric bike riders.
Service partners in the tourism sector indicate that they offer this service by displaying a sticker on their entrance door and allow guests to charge their bike battery free of charge.
The electricity supply is free of charge but you must use your own charger. Charging batteries is at your own risk.
