Beautiful rolling hills which are regularly scenery of the Tour de France with classics like Col de la Schlucht or Grand Ballon.


Small village at the foot of the mountains. This was the base for my tours.


There are plenty of routes for road biking enthusiasts. Up in the mountains there are hardly any other road users making biking quite enjoyable. Many roads have been used by the Tour de France at one point or another. Sometimes the traces are still visible.

Memorial du Linge

The Vosgese mountains were a battle ground during world war I. At Linge an entire section of the trenches has been rebuild as part of a large memorial.
