Discover Cernay with its fortified medieval enclosure and stork park before taking the Route des crêtes (Route of the Ridges) to the Hartmannswillerkopf, a magnificent First World War memorial. Winter and Summer sports enthusiasts can head directly to the Markstein resort for walking tours, pony rides and even paragliding. Continue to the Grand Ballon for stunning panoramic views of the Vosges Méridionales and Black Forest. Don’t forget your binoculars! End the day with a beautiful walk around the lake in the resort of Géradmer.
If you haven’t had time before, go to Lac de Gérardmer, the largest in the Vosges! Fishing, rowing and swimming is available here. Guided tours are available, by foot, car or boat. Next, head to Lac Blanc with a detour to Hohneck. Incredible walks and stunning panoramas of the Vosges, Alsace Plain and Black Forest. Once you reach Lac Blanc, nestled between the Col du Calvaire and the Rocher Observatoire Belmont, at the foot of the Route des Crêtes, enjoy the many activities available.
Exhausting all available options of Lac Blanc in one afternoon is impossible: canoeing, paragliding, horse riding, fishing… There’s something for everyone to enjoy! Head to Ribeauvillé, an unmissable stage of the Route de Vins, to sample the Riesling, Pinot Grigiot and Gewurztraminer. A walk in this colourful and typically Alsatian town is well worth a visit before taking the route one last time to Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, perched almost 800 metres above sea level.
