For nature lovers, the trek along the Ballon d’Alsace Road is an absolute thrill with breath-taking views of the Moselle Valley and surreptitious forests that enshroud the unwitting passerby in a sea of pine and larch. The plateau-like summit that lies at the end of the path is the perch upon which you can pause to absorb and marvel at one of the most unforgettable vistas in all of France- to the east lies the picturesque Black Forest whilst white-capped tips of the Mont Blanc can be seen in the southern horizon.
