In the heart of the headland between the Saar and the Moselle, at the crossroads of ancient Roman roads, in the centre of the charming Saargau, is the rural centre of Merzkirchen.
Mediaeval churches, towers and picturesque villages enliven the surrounding countryside, which still bears traces of its prehistoric past today. A wonderful panorama with a view far across the Saargau delights every guest, along with the hospitality on offer here. The show distillery displays the comprehensive use made of fruit trees in the Saargau.
