Trains, buses, shuttles, cycle paths and Green Ways are available to leave your car behind… Eastern France’s "Green Lung", the Ballons des Vosges Regional Natural Park is a vast territory of 2,700 km2 fringed by several main cities – all departure points for a really “green” getaway

Cycle paths are plentiful on the Park Territory, and are accessible to both families and sports enthusiasts. They run through the valleys, Wine Road and Plateau des Mille Etangs – along clean sites or roads with low traffic volumes. Three Green Lanes have been created, and are reserved for cyclists, pedestrians and rollerbladers in Lorraine and Alsace. Get on your bikes!
