Sulzbach (Saar) — Silent Forests, Sunny Peaks, Romantic Spots

There are many natural monuments in the vicinity of Sulzbach (Saar). These monuments range from the Burning Mountain in Dudweiler, to the boots in St. Ingbert, to the loop in Orscholz, to caves in the Schlossberg Homburg, and many more.

There are also many recreational areas including reservoirs, lakes, parks, cycling trails, and more. Most hiking trails take you through natural parks and landscape. But, Sulzbach offers something a little different.

If you take the industrial heritage Trail, you will take a trip through the past as you see the Saarland coal industry. Old coal towns, farms and equipment, and other coal mining memorabilia dot the trail.

There are also, of course, trails leading you through a more natural landscape. One of the most popular trails is a walk through the forest of the Burning Mountain. Walk along the water and witness some of the most beautiful scenery you’ve ever seen.

Or, take a longer hike along the Grand Circuit, which takes you through both the above mentioned trails, and one extra trail through the Saar coal forest.

Romantic evenings are an easy thing to find in this charming little town. Although wine is not as big a commodity in Sulzbach and the surrounding area of Saarland, you will still get the delicious wine made in other parts of Germany. Enjoy a nice candlelight meal at any of the many bistros and restaurants.

If you are interested in seeing some of Saarland’s industrial history, visit the historic house of salt. Salt was a valuable asset as a preservative and the industry created a big boost in the economy for Sulzbach and the nearby areas in Saarland.

And, of course, there are many beautiful chapels and churches to visit. The Old Chapel, the Grave Chapel, the Catholic Parish Church, and the Evangelical Church are all popular spots for Christian tourists.
