The list of towns worth visiting on the Mosel is endless and Saarburg is right up there in the top five in my opinion. Not large, just a 6700 population, and sporting Germany’s only active bronze bell foundry. The town started life in 964 (the American tourists I met in the main square could hardly get their heads round that) and has in turn been occupied by Luxembourg and French troops over the years.

It is a delight to visit and followers of this blog know that one of my main loves when travelling is finding a street bar and watching the world wag by.  Saarburg scores “dix points”.
