At the very beginning of the excursion, the lock at Mettlach raises our boat from 512 ft/156 m to 548 ft/167 m above sea level. Then we sail into the nature preserve of the Saar Bend, 4.4 mi/7 km long. The river makes a 300° bend, cut into the bedrock over millions of years. The Montclair Castle ruin is located on the forested hilltops within the Saar Bend. Our excursion takes you through the entire Saar Bend as far as Dreisbach and return. With prior booking, you can board or depart the boat in Dreisbach.
