Visit the treacherous Saar river for one of Europe’s most important industrial landmarks and centers. A Moselle tributary, this curvy river side-winds through the Vosges mountains through west Germany, the northeastern region of France and the Luxembourg border. Coal miners, iron workers, and steel forgers depended on this river to ship finished materials from French canals to German ports. Today, the river is best known for its beautiful winding curves. Only experienced, licensed boat operators are advised to test the currents of this river. For those who dare, the river provides an adventure through European forest and countryside that most can only dream of challenging.
