Higher Vosges,
between lakes and mountains

The famous blue line of the Vosges jumps off the pages of our childhood geography books and opens us up to wonderful new perspectives.
In summer or in winter, the Vosges Mountains are a true paradise for hikers, and for lovers of the great outdoors and vast countryside. Le Hohneck, Lorraine’s giant, peaking at 1,363 m, dominates the valley of the lakes and shelters a few herds of chamois on its slopes. This authentic and preserved natural environment makes for a relaxing getaway.

The Crest Road

Between peaks and pine trees, the route winds its way up to the mountain ridges with gentle curves dotted with farms, chalets and lovely villages. The horizon opens to a breathtaking panorama: the famous blue line of the Vosges Mountains. At the summit of Hohneck, enjoy a long walk through mountain pastures before taking a break at an authentic farmhouse inn. Be sure to try the bilberry pie fresh from the oven, an irresistible pleasure.
