Warm up on the trails

Nature at rest, bitter cold, a short day …. Hard to believe, but hiking in winter offers a whole host of pleasures. Finding the warmth of your cosy bed after a few hours in the cold. Enjoying a comforting meal after a hard day’s work. Appreciating the calm of nature, which invites you to switch off….

Here are our top 3 ways to enjoy hiking in the Kaysersberg valley this winter.

For your safety, adapt your equipment to the weather conditions on the day of your outing.

Tour of the Little and Big Hohnack

Château du Hohnack à Labaroche en Alsace

The Hohnack massif in Labaroche has some amazing historical and geological sights. In the winter atmosphere, these places are all the more mysterious and inspiring.

At the start, a slight incline will help you warm up your limbs. First reach the summit of Petit Hohnack (927m), where the remains of a late 11th-century castle still stand.

Then head for the neighbouring summit, Grand Hohnack (982m). You might think you’re in fairyland, with the tall pine trees lining the winding path and the maze of surprisingly shaped stones.

  • Distance: 7km
  • Difference in altitude: 374m

How to get to the Auberge Saint-Alexis from Kaysersberg

Chêne de la chapelle à Kaysersberg

What better way to get out and about than to organise a hike with a lunch break halfway along the way at the Auberge Saint-Alexis in the hills above Kaysersberg.

As the kilometres go by, you’ll already be able to smell the cheese melting and the dishes simmering. Just one more climb before you reach your reward.

Put your feet under the table and choose the menu that will give you strength for the return journey. The hike isn’t over – it’s time to think about heading home!

  • Distance: 11.6km
  • Difference in altitude: 553m
  • Level: intermediate

The Sigolsheim necropolis

Nécropole nationale de Sigolsheim

During the battle of the Colmar pocket between December 1944 and February 1945, the soldiers fought in winter conditions: freezing temperatures, snowstorms… and many lost their lives.

This walk will take you to the Sigolsheim National Necropolis, a symbol of this painful past, where the soldiers who “died for France” are buried on the Blutberg hill, the “mountain of blood”.

Today, there is a peaceful atmosphere in which to admire a 360° view and commemorate a historic event.

  • Distance: 5.9km
  • Ascent: 231m
  • Level: general public
