Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Saarland

Saarland is a region in Germany. It is the smallest of the outlying states of the country. The capital city of this area is called Saarbrucken. Saarland is the base for Villeroy & Boch, the largest ceramic manufacturer in the world. It is bordered by Rhineland-Palatinate, Luxembourg, and Moselle, France.

German is the main language of the region, although there are two different dialects spoken based on the part of the region. The area has a very rich history. It was initially a part of the Roman Empire and is now the location of the largest mosaic floor dating back to the Roman era. (This floor is located in Perl-Nennig, a villa built in the 3rd century.)

When you stay in Saarland, make sure you look for a hostel near the town center in Saarbrucken. The old town center was once the royal seat of the Baroque family. A church called the Ludwigskirche is a major landmark in the area, and is a good place to begin your travels.

If you’re an adventurer, there are many cycle trails and hiking trails running alongside the Saar River. There are usually multiple hostels in an area, all with trails near them. The landscape is famous all over the world, especially if you cycle up to the Saar Loop.

When hiking, walk the 60 trails that go across the region. You get to experience the diversity of the local flora and fauna. Climbing the Saar-Hunsruck is a great way to experience adventure too, as it was once voted the most beautiful hiking trail in the country.

Natural sights aren’t the only attractions in the area, either. You can also take a look at the industrial relics dating back 250 years. These are mainly focused on the mining and manufacturing of steel and coal. One of these, the Volklingen Ironworks, is also a World Heritage Site designated by UNESCO.

Some of the older factories in the region have also been refurbished into art and crafts exhibitions and museums. There are also parties happening at the disused factories and warehouses. You can typically stay at hotels and hostels in the city close to these factories.

Nightlife aside, the local cuisine is a great way for you to experience the diversity of the region. You can eat local dishes prepared at small restaurants, or taste the world at the many foreign-owned eateries in the cities.
