  • This Observatory allows you to have a view on the lake and the city Gérardmer. You can go up 4 by 4 because it's small and on the top, it can be wobbly. This place is quite difficult to reach with.....  more »
  • Frustrated by the red herrings of the 'sentiers débalisés' that led us through areas of felled trees and trees that were being swung around by forestry vehicles, we were finally rewarded by the most.....  more »

  • After hiking one hour from the lake, we finally arrived at the top and reach the Tower ... But there was a big queue to go up (the Tower is limited to 5 persons)... Only people going by car :( And we couldn't wait because the light was going down and we had to walk back ... What a shame! Still the walk was nice.
  • We walked up from Gerardmer, and decided to go off road. We used Oruxmaps to navigate, which was very helpful, as the openstreetmap is far more detailed than Google maps for this kind of hike. The walk is very strenuous! But being under the trees means it is not quite so hot. When we arrived at the tower, there was a large group from a school taking turns to go up, 4 at a time, as the sign says. All very disciplined, but it did mean we had a long wait. The tower is pretty high, the views are stunning, but the spiral staircase made me a bit dizzy, and I was not the only one. We walked back down the road, slightly further, but quicker.
