Vosges Mountains 1914-1918

Experience Mountain Warfare during a tour of the Vosges Mountains, including the Hartmannsweiler- and Linge-Kopf.

The Alsace region is situated along the Franco-German border, and its history is strongly linked to Franco-German relations. 

The First World War combat left countless remnants and traces well hidden in the Vosges Mountain woods.

Markus lived in Alsace almost three years, and he spent nearly every minute of free time exploring and discovering the remains of combat from more than a hundred years ago.

This tour brings participants to Hartmannsweiler-Kopf, to the Linge-Kopf and to other highlights in the Vosges region.  The ferocious fights there had been conducted under terrible conditions in a high-mountain landscape that makes these battlefields unique along the Western Front.

Tour length and geography can vary based on client availability, interest level and physical ability.  Tour length can last from six hours to several days to explore this operation in depth.
