Saarburg waterfalls

From the small iron bridge, you can experience the imposing spectacle of the masses of water falling more than 20m over the rock cascades. Originally the Leuk flowed around the city and fed fish ponds and the castle moats of the “Saarburg”. In the 13th century the stream was quickly rerouted to provide sufficient fire-fighting water in the city. At the same time the mills in the valley basin at the foot of the waterfall were built.
