The Sarre canal (Saarbrücken (D) > Gondrexange)
EuroVélo® 5
30 locks – 14 ½ hours – 76 km

The canal was once used to carry coal from Lorraine to Alsace and Germany and was inaugurated in 1866. It was initially built to contribute to the development of mines in Lorraine and Saar, while cutting the cost of coal sent to the great industries in Mulhouse, which were voracious consumers of coal. From Sarreguemines, famous for its earthenware, the canal winds through the magnificent valley of the river Saar, crosses Alsace Bossue, which is the canal’s gateway into Alsace and then the Lorraine Regional Nature park. You will discover the beautiful forests, countryside landscapes and vast reservoirs and lakes with many nautical leisure activities on offer, as well as an interesting wildlife park in Rhodes. Beyond Gondrexange you can opt for a boat trip to Nancy or Strasbourg and back, or continue by bike along the cycling track Eurovélo 5 by the Marne-Rhine Canal from Arzviller and the valley of locks.
