The treasures of France's Vosges region
Issued on: Modified:
FRANCE 24 takes you to discover France's eastern Vosges region. Each morning at dawn, the peaks of the Vosges mountains reappear through the mist. The famous Ridge Route can also be made out in the first rays of sun. On this road, created during World War I, we discover a multitude of landscapes characteristic of the region. At 1,200 metres above sea level, arnica flowers grow. The plant, well-known for its healing properties, is known locally as "Vosges gold".
