Ridge Road, La Bresse, Alsace, France
The road follows a ridgeline route of 80km, linking the town of Thann to the Col de Bonhomme pass. Throughout its run, it is sometimes in Lorraine, and sometimes in Alsace. Symbolically, the Route des Crêtes marks the border between Lorraine and Alsace, between the Romance and Germanic language worlds.
At each mountainside, the road travels along bucolic countrysides, opening up views of mountain passes, rounded mountains, lakes, rocks, pastures, and forests of majestic pines.
