Beautiful view

Best at early morning when misty. Beautiful spot, nice walks and a high up tower to climb. Slides, awesome views. Perfect for families!

I would give it 5 stars as I really liked the treetop path and sightseeing tower. But the ticket for the family is quite expensive, plus you have to pay for parking, which is illogical in my view. At least the WC is free of charge and clean. There are a couple of activities for kids on the treetop-path and... More

The treetop pathway leading to the stunning view of vistas is well made. Good experience for kids, has slides and play areas on the tree-top, as you walk! In he end a 6 to 7 floor elevation and a beautiful view to admire. Depending on the day, it can get windy up there.

Very nice views. Family ticket for € 21,50. It's Ok. It whould be nice if the Park had more activities because they have plenty of space to explore different things. Anyway, just for the views it's worthy. 4 stars

This place is fantastic. From the hill you can see the Saarschleife and enjoy this magnificent view. It is definitely worthwhile visiting!

From the top of the hill you have a superb view of the hairpin turn of the Saar river. Down below a lovely little path alongside it invites you for a leisurely walk. You might encounter an enormous river freighter and a small kayak sharing the space. If you are up to it they have build a huge structure to... More

We walked along the canal bank from Mettlach, found the forest track to the viewpoint eventually (it's better marked from the opposite side) and walked through the forest to get this view. The gradient was easily manageable and the view was great. On the return we took the ferry to the opposite side to vary the walk back - about... More

I don't how to explain but this curve of the Saar is really very powerful. And the walking till arriving there is very pleasant.

It was just a short hike to the lookout from the parking lot - 10 min. at most. The view is very pretty and is probably more so with fall colors, but it's not spectacular. Lock up your car and keep your items out of sight. A woman practically followed me in to the bathroom stall begging for money and... More

Absolutely stunning view over the Saar bend that is dotted with restaurants/B&Bs that are open winter and summer months. If you are a strong walker then leave the car at the Cloef Orcholtz car park walk to the shelter at the viewpoint and descend down the hillside (about 30 mins down and 45 back ) and join the roadway leading...
