When in Belfort we drove up the road leading over the pass near the peak of the Ballon d'Alsace. From the parking space it is only a short walk to the top of the Ballon d'Alsace, a mountain in a range of low mountains in eastern France. It's a lovely walk and from the top the view is breathtaking over the Vosges, the Rhine Valley with the Black Forest in the distance. We also saw the top of the Grand Ballon, one of the highest points in this mountain range. We were really lucky as the weather was just perfect, very sunny and a very blue sky, making it a delight to walk in such beautiful surroundings!
