  • 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 »
  • Together with the walk around the summit, you get a great view of the area and can even look to Germany and Switzerland.  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.
  • The highest point of the Vosges. A small hike to the top of 15 minutes brings you an overview of the Vosges. A pitty we had some clouds that blocked our view. Anyway a must stop
  • A great place to have an small walk. We went up from the small parking area and down the the hotel (was not open) We had some clear weather and good see the Alps.
  • Beautiful view point. Easily accesible by car up to the last km or so. Great hiking trips. Great scenery
