  • the highest peak of the Vosges Mountains, with picturesque passes, beautiful towns and great views. It is possible to enter from the car park in 20 minutes. Restaurants and hotel on the trail.  more »
  • If you're planning on going up there make sure you're prepared ... for some repairs. Some sections of the road are appalling! Cobblestones in the bends! Ended up with a staggering £1500 repairs...  more »
  • The highest point in Vosges. Good to go for a half day trip. I would say easy hiking but worth to go. One can have spectacular view of nearby towns.
  • Great walking and mountain biking area, short or long routes. Stupendous views and great places to eat all around.
