You can always expect a warm welcome, mountain hospitality and enriching encounters with locals and travellers, all over a good meal. Foodies, set your course for the Vosges Mountains.
Relaxing after an eventful day

Miles away from traditional winter holiday activities, discover Gérardmer’s Holiday Pass. Valid for 7 consecutive days, enjoy access to a variety of leisure activities and outings to experience with friends, as a family or on your own.
The weather isn’t great for skiing? Practice spins at the ice skating rink, work on your strike at the bowling alley or enjoy a relaxing moment in the sauna.
The sound of snow
The kids love the feeling of snow cracking under our feet! The snow squeaks with each step, as the flakes are packed together. Take the kids on a snowshoe hike to enjoy this peaceful, relaxing sound.
