From France through the eastern Saarland and the North Palatinate to the Naheland, the cycle route runs along the Blies and Glan, two of the most important tributaries of the Saar and Nahe rivers. With no long climbs, just a few short ascents on designated paths, this cycle route is straightforward and safe for everyone.

The cross-border Glan-Blies Cycle Route runs for 130 km from Sarreguemines in Lorraine through the Bliestal valley and the Kuseler Musikantenland along the Glan to Staudernheim (Nahe). The route’s proximity to the rivers gives it a flat profile and also offers a unique range of very diverse landscapes. For long stretches, the path follows disused railway tracks, or runs parallel with the draisine railway line, away from busy roads. The route is therefore particularly suitable for families with children.

The Glan-Blies Cycle Route connects to the Saarland network in the south-west and merges onto the Nahe Cycle Route in the north. Between Waldmoor and Altenglan, it shares a section of the Rhineland-Palatinate Cycle Route.

Turn-by-turn directions

Sarreguemines – Blieskastel, approx. 34 km

The town of Sarreguemines is located at the point where the Blies river flows into the Saar and is famous for its ceramics industry. We recommend a visit to the casino, which enjoys an idyllic location on the banks of the Saar. You pedal through the Bliesgau Biosphere Reserve until you reach Gersheim, which has a huge orchid plantation. Continuing along the idyllic Blies, you soon arrive at your overnight destination of Blieskastel. The city is part of the Saar-Palatinate Baroque Route and is a Kneipp spa resort. You will love the picturesque old town with its fountains, courtyards and Baroque buildings.

Blieskastel – Waldmohr, approx. 34 km

After a very short time in the saddle, you reach Schwarzenacker Roman Museum. You pass through Beeden, famous for its sizeable stork population, before reaching Homburg, where the Schlossberghöhlen Caves, Hohenburg Castle Ruins and Karlsberg Castle are well worth a visit. The fisherman’s hut at Mohrmühlweiher pond near Waldmohr is a great place to stop for a break, and is located directly on the cycle path.

Waldmohr – Altenglan, approx. 30 k

Varied landscapes and paths. From Waldmohr, the route continues along the former Glan Valley Railway. After Schönenberg-Kübelberg, it is worth taking a detour to Lake Ohmbachsee and the Diamond-Cutting Museum (alternative route 1). Here you can enjoy views of a natural area that has been untouched for many years. This cycle route is characterised by pretty towns, direct access to restaurants along the route, and quiet side streets with no traffic.

Altenglan - Staudernheim, approx. 40 km

From Altenglan, the cycle route runs largely parallel to the draisine railway line. The beautiful landscape contains a wealth of hidden gems for the cyclist to discover. The bike almost seems to coast along by itself through the Glan river valley. Anyone who fancies a little climb can pedal their way up the alternative route past Hirsauer Kapelle church. (Alternative route 2) There is plenty of hustle and bustle at Lauterecker train station – change onto the draisine railway line (reservation required), pick up the Lauter Valley Cycle Route or stop for some cool refreshment. The cycle route follows the Glan through the fields, where there is magic in the air. The next stop on the route is Meisenheim: the historic old town is well worth a detour. The mouth of the Nahe is already in sight as you reach the ruined monastery of Disibodenberg, where Hildegard von Bingen lived and worked. The Glan-Blies Cycle Route joins the Nahe Cycle Route at the draisine railway line booking office in Staudernheim.
