Partly rural and tranquil, partly urbane and lively, Bexbach is situated in the eastern part of the Saarland. Its capital is Saarbruecken. Geographically, the Saarland lies in the so-called "three country corner." It gets this name as the borders of Germany, France, and Luxembourg meet there.
Bexbach has a Mining Museum, the only one in Southwest Germany. The Flower Garden is a riot of colors, especially in May when, "a hundred thousand tulips bloom." The Hindenburg Tower in the Flower Garden gives you an exhilarating view. There is also swimming, tennis, horse-back riding, golf, and lots of organized hiking in the area.
The Rhine River, Mosel River, the Black Forest, Trier (the oldest city in Germany), and Strasbourg, France are easy day-trips from Bexbach.
