Bring your camera and hiking shoes to Route des Cretes, one of the most beautiful trails of the Vosges. The route leads you more than 80 km (50 mi) through the picturesque landscape, featuring high-altitude lakes, valleys, and mountains. Altitudes varying from 940 to 1400 m (3,080 to 4,590 ft) offer a diverse selection of 2,700 species of flora, with botanical gardens along the route. This boundary between the Alsace and Lorraine regions was a strategic road during World War I that now leads to the Hohneck summit, one of the highest summits of the Vosges mountain range.
