The Ballon d Alsace

Land of adventure and leisure culmination in the Southern Vosges.

At 1247 m altitude this is the point where three regions meet: Lorraine, Franche-Comté and Alsace.
From the summit, discover a panoramic view over the Doller valley and the Alps following the 1½ to 2 hour discovery route (Sentier de découverte).

The Ballons des Vosges Regional Natural Park has an expansive range of activities in store for its visitors: walks, paragliding, routes in the trees, cani-rando dog treks, mountain biking and winter activities such as skiing, sledging, cross-country skiing, dog-sledding.
You can stay in hotels, inns, hostels or stopover gites and eat in farm inns or fast food.

Several events take place in Ballon d'Alsace throughout the year: such as the Transhumance Festival, Woodcutters' Festival, mountain dwellers' festival and torch descent.
