    After hiking with two friends last year (2018) through the Vosges mountains from Chatenois to Bonhomme (3 stages) on the GR 53, we decided to go for the first three stages of the GR 53 this year, and so the Vosges To traverse piece by piece. The GR53 starts at the station of Wissembourg (Alsace). Since we came to Wissembourg by car, we parked on the Place de la Foire. At the parking place de la foire is the free parking, even for several days, possible.From the parking lot we stay south to meet the rue nationale after a few meters and walk through the center. When we stood in front of the Patisserie Au p'tit Kougelff and admired the displays, we were surprised by a heavy downpour. We saved ourselves in the café and ate the best eclaires we ever had. Then we continued on the rue national in a westerly direction. The weather got better now and the sun came out.The first stage we had planned on 10 km, because we started at noon from Wissembourg and this is a good not so exhausting entry for the other longer stages. In Climbach there is only one ** - Hotel, the Hôtel à l'Ange, with good home cooking and nice rooms. The place Climbach is not very interesting. The first stage can be extended to Petit Wingen. There is the possibility to stay overnight at Le Hohenbourg. But there is nothing to be found on the internet. Only in front of the restaurant is a hint to be found. The kitchen should be excellent. The overnight stay there costs € 25,00 per person. It is recommended to extend the first stage until there, because on the 2nd stage numerous castles are to visit and then you have time to make a trip to the castle ruins Löwenstein, Hohenburg and Wegelnburg.In Wissemburg we first follow the rue nationale to the town hall. There we keep left and follow the Rue de la Republique until we come to a roundabout. There we also find a sign indicating the GR53. The GR53 is marked with a red rectangle. At the roundabout, we keep right again and follow the very well-signposted GR53 which now leads us quite quickly from the village to meadows and fields. From there it goes on into the forest until we reach the Refuge de la Scherhol. There we briefly leave the GR53 and follow a green triangle on a narrow single trail. It now goes from the Refuge only down to Climbach. Our decision only to Climbach to run and the tour not renewed, turned out right after our arrival at the hotel. Shortly after we moved into our rooms, it poured heavily again. We would have been wet to the skin.
