The imposing and contrasting highland landscape of the Vosges Mountains impresses its visitors by alpine heights, deep valleys, picturesque thick forests and small hidden crystal-clear lakes. Here nature has created a paradise for hiking, climbing and cycling. Situated in the northeast of France, the Vosges unite the unique mountain areas of three districts: Alsace, Lorraine and Burgundy. With the Parc des Vosges du Nord and the Parc des Ballons des Vosges we find two wonderful wildlife parks in these highlands. Countless designated paths lead the visitor across the mountains down to green valleys along sparkling streams into deep dark forests.
