However, during the lead up to Christmas and over the festive
season, there are more and more people drawn to this area for the fantastic atmosphere,
the mulled wine and the famous Christmas markets.
Yet for the more adventurous, the mountain range of the Vosges caters for numerous
activities including horse riding, hiking, cycling
and much more via a vast network of trails making virtually all of the Vosges Massif
accessible, even down to the most hard to reach places.
And although summer is a beautiful time for walks and excursions, winter can also be a
picturesque and tranquil place, unless of course you prefer more strenuous activities such
as water sports or skiing, all of which are
available in the Alsace.
