How to get to the starting point: From the city centre, cross the main road (RN66), then the level crossing on Rue Kléber to park your car on the square straight on your right, called “Place des Combattants d’Afrique du Nord”. Follow the Rue Kléber until the junction with Rue du Steinby. Take the latter for about 450 metres and cross the bridge on your left (after the sports hall at Steinby School). At the crossroads of Avenue Poincaré and Rue du Coteau, go straight on to reach Rue du Riegelsbourg (departure point).Key Markings: Red circleDescription: At the end of Rue du Riegelsbourg, enter the forest path at the junction with Rue de la Forêt. Turn left onto the footpath (follow the red circle). Exit the path on the forest lane you will take upwards; then, on the first large bend, carry on straight ahead on a narrower path (red circle). Stay on this path to get to the top through the south slope. Near a bench, the path goes up towards the right in a forest (composed of various essences), until the ‘Petit Kurenbourg’ – 648m – called “Vue Zuber”, (another bench with beautiful panorama from the Thanner Hubel to the Grand Ballon). From the summit, leave straight on to go down the path (red circle) of the North slope. At the first junction, go down on your right to join the forest path that you will follow all the way back to the departure point of the walk.
