Return trip: Hesse via Saverne & Saarbrucken
Allow 10 to 14 nights
Venturing into western Germany gives you a feel for the uniqueness of the region, especially in chic Saarbrücken.
Reviews for the The Dual Nations Long Break overview
A couple travelling with one teenager.
The Sarre canal from Hesse to Sarralbe was the most scenic and interesting and we wish we had spend an extra night in that part of the canal. The canal and river from that point on was not very interesting, and Sarraguemines is really only worth spending half a day in. There is nowhere good to moor between Sarraguemines and Saarbrucken, so we spent the last night at the Saarbrucken marina, which was not very nice.
