Saar

 

(also Sarre), a river in France and the Federal Republic of Germany, in the Rhine River basin; a right tributary of the Moselle River. The Saar is 246 km long and drains an area of approximately 7,400 sq km. Originating in the Vosges, the Saar crosses the Saar Coal Basin and cuts deeply through the western spurs of the Hunsrück. It empties into the Moselle above the city of Trier. The Saar is navigable to the city of Dillingen; higher, it has locks and is joined by the Saar Coal Canal to the Marne-Rhine Canal. It is fed primarily by rain. The water level rises in winter and spring. The cities of Sarreguemines (France) and Saarbrücken, Völklingen, Saarlouis, and Merzig (Federal Republic of Germany) are located on the Saar.
