It’s the ideal backdrop for all your outings. Enjoy a vast playground for hiking, mountain biking, horse riding as well as cultural sight-seeing.

The Auberge offers refined Alsatian cooking in all four rooms of its restaurant. Enjoy a wide choice from wild game, fish, meat, offal, foie gras, snails and vol-au-vents (savoury puff pastries) and discover traditional Alsatian cooking.

Regional Natural Park

The Northern Vosges Regional Natural Park was established on the 30th of December 1975. It comprises 111 communes with a total population of 90,000 and straddles the Bas-Rhin and Moselle departments. Contrary to its name, this park is not at all situated in the Vosges department nor centred on the Vosges mountain range (whose peaks are a few dozen kilometres further south), but rather on its periphery. The Northern Vosges are referred to as the northern step to the Vosges mountain range as well as the southern part of the Vasgovie mountain range. The park is part of the cross-border biosphere reserve of the North-Pfalzerwald Vosges
