Staden Riverwalk in Saarbrücken



brief description: 

the Staden is a stretch of riverbank in the very heart of Saarbrücken, which extends approx. 2 km along the Saar from the Römerbrücke Power Plant (also featured in the Location Guide) to the Alte Brücke (old bridge). With its beer gardens, playgrounds, and a sandy beach, the Staden is a favoured destination for old and young alike, especially during summer months. The riverwalk, which is lined with sycamore trees, is also very popular with promenaders, bikers, or inline skaters. For those wanting to sit back and relax in the sunshine with a refreshing drink, the Ulanen Pavillion beer garden is the perfect spot
