Stroll through the park, founded in 1989, on your own, as a couple or with the whole family, as you can choose from routes of varying levels of difficulty. Climb one of the 14 summits, the highest of which stands at 1,424 metres: the Grand Ballon d’Alsace.
Do you enjoy outdoor activities on vacation? Then the 3,000-square-kilometre nature park is your paradise. Here you can ride your mountain bike through the landscape at any level of difficulty. Electric bikes are a good support for less athletic cyclists.
Especially in hot summers, a cool refreshing dip in a swimming lake is the perfect vacation change. And in the Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges, you’ll find numerous lakes, some of them man-made, that you can visit. How about a canoe trip for the whole family, for example? In addition to canoe trips, you can of course also go surfing, rowing or take part in spectacular diving trips.
Discovering the park on horseback is a highlight for all riding enthusiasts. In the Parc Naturel des Ballons des Vosges, you’ll find hundreds of kilometers of marked trails on which to explore the park in the company of your horse.
Vacations are often the only time you really think about yourself and your health. A visit to a spa often works wonders when you’re stressed and in need of rest. Two famous spas in the park await you, offering a wide range of spa treatments and medical courses. Book a stay now.
