Saar-Nahe-Höhen cycle path: 81.6 km

From Güdingen an der Saar, the cycle path initially runs in an easterly direction through floodplains past small excursion restaurants. After a few kilometers, an ascent leads to the high-altitude Ensheim Airport. Following an old Roman path, you then continue on the heights of the Bliesgau in the direction of Heckendalheim. The open Gau landscape with its orchards and wide views is worth the climb. After a descent into the beautiful Alschbach valley, the route continues to the baroque town of Blieskastel. Through the Kirkeler Forest with its bizarre rock formations, past the Kirkeler Burg , the cycle path continues in a northerly direction to Bexbach. In the Saarland Mining Museum, visitors can go underground to see old and new mining methods at authentic locations. A short, urban section leads through Neunkirchen, where the industrial culture and history of the city can be experienced on themed trails. Over 500 animal species await visitors in Neunkirchen Zoo. The cycle path now leaves the urban area on a former Roman road and leads through a very scenic area with many distant views. The Oberthaler Bruch nature reserve with its great biodiversity leads to the Bostalsee . Idyllically embedded in the wooded low mountain range, the largest lake in southwest Germany is a popular excursion destination with numerous leisure activities. The local cycle path, which connects the source of the river at Selbach with the estuary at Bingen am Rhein, passes by Lake Bostalsee. The Saar-Nahe-Höhen-Radweg can be easily combined with the north passage of the Saarland-Radweg and the Saar-Radweg to a multi-day round tour.

European Mill Cycle Path: 47.6 km

The cross-border route of the European Mill Cycle Path leads through the landscape of the Saar-Palatinate and Lorraine border region and is all about water. The cycle path leads through river valleys and forests as well as over ridges with wonderful views. From Zweibrücken the path first leads over a former railway embankment to the monastery town of Hornbach with the grave of St. Pirminius. In the valley of the swallow it goes briefly over to France. The way back of the circuit runs through the "Parr" (parish), a heavenly, peaceful rural landscape around the valley of the Bickenalb. Over 10 mills are located along the way and testify to the miller's trade, which was once important in this region. The highlight is without a doubt the mill and sawmill museum at the Eschviller mill in Volmunster. Here you can still see how grain and wood are processed with hydropower
