The EuroVelo 5 in Germany is short, yet very sweet! Only 80 km long. The route leads the cyclists through the beautiful German federal states of Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate. On this section of the EuroVelo 5, cyclists enjoy all that the impressive countryside and the beautiful river valleys of southwestern Germany have to offer. Shortly after crossing the border with Luxembourg, you will ride through the smaller cities, towns and wine villages located along the river Saar, before arriving at the beautiful town of Saarbrücken, Saarland's administrative, commercial and cultural centre. From there, the German-French border is not far.
