Der Bietzerberger – Bietzerberg Way

Premium walking route

The “Bietzerberger Way” provides impressive panoramic views into France, to the Saar loop and the hills of the Hochwald.

Hidden streams, open meadows and fields, winding paths and shady woodlands: the route is surprisingly varied, passing through a fruit orchard and incorporating wooden walkways on the “WilderWaldWeg” path that won an award from the Saarland Environment Ministry and provides new insights into the natural world of the woodland.

Walkers encounter stone witnesses from the past such as the old dam wall and watercourses in the Mühlental, the remains of the Geier mill and the historic border stones that bear witness to the Bietzerberg’s chequered history passing back and forth between the Electorate of Trier and Lorraine. Another impressive feature are the stone sculptures by the internationally renowned Merzig sculptor Prof. Paul Schneider, several of which stand next to the path and invite walkers to take a closer look.
