Over 50 percent of the town of Sankt Ingbert (also written St. Ingbert) is covered in lush forest. If you are looking for a little outdoor adventure, grab a mountain bike and head out on one of the many trails that meander through the woods. The paths also serve for when you’re looking for some more leisurely activity in the form of walking and taking in the beautiful surroundings.
St. Ingbert also houses a beautiful year round stainless steel pool called Das Blau which translates to “The Blue.” Adults pay up to 7 EUR to enter and can then enjoy frolicking about in the sparkling blue water. Whether swimming laps or playing Marco Polo, Das Blau provides you with some wonderful aquatic relaxation.
