  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Together with the walk around the summit, you get a great view of the area and can even look to Germany and Switzerland.

  • Beautiful climb to do on a bike, the difficulty depends entirely on the route you choose. Be a bit wary with weather in the colder seasons.
  • Must go when in the area
  • It was a very nice challange to climb the mountain with our roadbikes. Not as busy as we had thought. Unfortunately the last bit of the climb can only be done by foot.
  • Magic.. 🌄🏔
  • Amazing views!
