Discover the sights!

The Mandelbachtal (Literally: Valley of the Almond Stream) , it is said, is the Tuscany of the Saarland. The municipality with its 8 villages lies directly on the French border and in the UNESCO-designated biosphere reserve known as the ‘Bliesgau’, a unique cultural landscape. The villages are surrounded by soft green hills, nature reserves, wild orchard fields and unspoilt forest – Mother Nature at her healthiest!
