  • Splendid road in the footsteps of our elders. Beautiful scenery. To do during the week because the sunny weekend would be like on the Paris ring road.

  • Landscapes, views, atmosphere, nature, activities... There is only one thing missing from the Vosges, the sea! The road to the ridges offers beautiful walks, whether on foot, by car, to hike or stroll, in short, to do of course!
