The Velo Route SaarLorLux connects the cities Saarbrücken, Trier and Luxembourg in one large circular tour. It includes the valleys of the Saar, Moselle and Sauer, and runs across the heights of the watersheds to reach the valleys. The Rhineland-Palatinate route sections Saarhölzbach - Saarburg - Konz - Trier - Igel - Wasserbilligerbrück - Metzdorf are exclusively river cycle paths of the Moselle and Saar.
