The Webenheim Farmers' Festival is one of the largest folk festivals in Saarland. It is celebrated for nine days in July every year on the Webenheim fairground in Blieskastel. Next to a huge party tent, horse races take place on a grass track, and the presentation of rural life in the Bliesgau area is also an essential component. There are carousels and music and stalls and booths and kiosks, but the heart of the festival is the farmer’s market with artisan made foods and goods for sale.
The “Guldenschlucht” (florin gorge) is an impressive V-shaped valley with a tiny creek and enormous mottled sandstone boulders. The Saar-Moselle hiking trail leads through the gorge, passing over numerous little bridges and stairs, from Saarland to Rhineland-Palatinate. The canyon forest is primarily composed of beech trees. The gorge is also home to fire salamanders.
