So much to see!
When going through Lorraine, stop for a few days or more to discover the Vosges department and find out what it has to offer. Nature, relaxation, culture and gastronomy: There is so much to discover next to the park.
A naturally green department
The endless, magnificent forests of the Vosges offer amazing options for people who like walks and hiking. The rambling organisation “Club Vosgien” has marked over 4’000 kms of trails. Head to out discover breath-taking sceneries. The “route des crêtes”, the “sentier des roches”, “Gérardmer”, “lac du Corbeau”, “la Bresse”,…
A trip to the Vosges area is also the opportunity to take a break in one of the department’s four thermal spas: Vittel, Contrexéville, Bains-les-Bains and Plombières-les-Bains. A treatment for well-being with therapeutic virtues that have been known since antiquity.
Take a step back in time
Rich with considerable heritage, you will be amazed by the treasures that the Vosges are full of.
