The section “Legendäres” (“Larger-than-Life”) introduces the “Ringelweck”, a delicacy invented by two Saarbrücken natives, who wanted to make their Saarland bologna sausage even more delicious, and also features the theatre and film director Max Ophüls.
Coverage of the Saar-Alsace Bicycle Route comes directly from Saarland Tourism Board’s Susanne Renk, the head of their press and communications department, who actually cycled the route with some North German companions.
