The land of Sarre, Mettlach , Germany!

Here I am back in Germany, and even thus written on plenty there in my blog there is always something that needs a little bit of attention. I think the; town of Mettlach in the Sarre region is one of them. I will just touch base here on the wonderful lunch we had there which the family love for its simplicity, good food/great prices and a nice street view in an old quant town: Mettlach.

Well this was a nice surprise unintended. I was going to Sarrebrucken to see the Ford factory as my car is a Ford all my life. And while getting there met a nice city and a pretty town on the way;the town is Mettlach.  Going all the way on the road B51 from my base south to Mettlach was easy, passing many interesting towns and enjoying the car ride.

Mettlach

Mettlach is a nice town, with a history of Saint Luitwinius in a very nice Church.(see post) Great river cruising on the Sarre river up river and most of all the home of ceramics wonderland in Villeroy & Boch (see post),with its many outlet stores and also many others like Land’s End.

So it is really a shopper’s paradise with a nice river cruise and picking up some bargain the day trip to Mettlach should be great. However, for me, not my wife, the best was the simple nice lunch we had at Eis Cafe La Taormina at Freiherr-vom-Stein-Straße 32 (street). No webpage but a Facebook page in German: Facebook page of Eis Cafe La Taormina

We had a snack there at Eis cafe La Taormina, Sicilian folks and great beers with gelato, Italian ice cream just wonderful like been there,and on the main street just down from the Church on the main street to the river boat terminals and five minutes from the Villeroy & Boch abbey/outlet stores.
