    For the landmark and its driveways is the already mentioned Quaeldich contribution everything worth knowing. What is worth mentioning is the fact that there is a good parking space upstairs. Thus, there is the possibility to park his car up, unpack the wheels and then drive his laps. There are really no limits here.

    Great views and choice to continue the tour either along the Route des Cretes, or down to Guebwiller or Kruth.

    Great to drive. Be sure to go up to the Alm Le Treh and taste the lunch menu. The cheese is world class.

    Well-known pass that is more of a crossroads due to the Route des Cretes running on the ridge. This results in many possible combinations.

    Great steady climb which is not very steep.

    The landmark is a great elevation on the Route de Cretes. There is an auberge up there and recently a dome tent with catering. Both are only open for the season (spring to autumn). It's best to inform yourself beforehand via Google. From the Markstein you can really go in all directions. As a hub, it is well suited for planning tours. I like the descent to Kruth best.
