PROGRAM

WW1 in the Vosges mountains – Program

  • Visit the Linge Memorial and battlefield. At this small site run by volunteers, you will get familiar with the daily life of the soldiers in the trenches. They had the heavy task of maintaining a front line located at more than 1100 meters above sea level, with extreme weather conditions in winter. After visiting the memorial, you will walk in the trenches by your own.
  • Drive on the crest road (Route des CrΓͺtes), a panoramic road which was built to supply the French troops who fought on the front of the Vosges.
  • Lunch at a traditional mountain farm inn (ferme-auberge)
  • Visit of the Hartmannswillerkopf memorial. This is a must for history buffs. During the First World War WW1, both enemy camps wanted to control this mountain overlooking the Upper Rhine valley. Result: a real massacre. 35 000 soldiers died on this front line between 1914 and 1918. The site features a very new museum built in collaboration between French and German.
  • At the bottom of the battlefield, taste a wine from old vines planted just after WW1
