Description:
The Saar () is a river in northeastern France and western Germany, and a right tributary of the Mosel . It rises in the Vosges mountains on the border of Alsace and Lorraine and flows northwards into the Mosel near Trier. It has two headstreams ( the Sarre Rouge and Sarre Blanche, which join in Lorquin), that both start near Mont Donon, the highest peak of the northern Vosges. After 246 km (126 km in France and 120 km in Germany) the Saar flows into the Moselle River at Konz (Rhineland-Palatinate) between Trier and the Luxembourg border. It has a catchment area of 7,431 km².
