Tips

  • Bellisio

    The view is really great, BUT there is a lot going on there. Only four people can always be on top at the same time. Thus, not necessarily recommended on the weekend. We had faith well over an hour waiting :(
    But also the lunch break held there. When standing you have to secure your place: /

    Nice goal for your hike on top of the hill. Can be a little bussy as it is one of the local highlights and also reachable by car.

    Beautiful vantage point with many different types of trails you can take to this tower. He is also accessible by car. Therefore, it can come to the tower itself to a queue. There are only 4 people at the same time on the tower. As the stairs and the platform is very narrow. But the view over Gerardmer is worthwhile

    The observation tower itself is spectacular, as is the view.
    Even with drizzle, cloudy skies and light squalls there was a queue here.
