1.5 km to Bischoffsheim

This long walk will allow you to discover two remarkable places in the region: the Heidenkopf with its 360° orientation table and the Verloreneck shelter and its forest of mysterious menhirs. Don't hesitate to set off on the paths: this hike in the forest offers magnificent views of the Mont Sainte-Odile, the castles of Ottrott or the Guirbaden!

On the summit of the Heidenkopf, buried in the vegetation, there are still the remains of the foundations of an old castle whose history and name remain unknown. In 1909, the Vosges Club erected the Mundel Tower from which a magnificent panorama awaits you over the Vosges and the Alsace plain as far as Strasbourg. A remarkable orientation plaque surrounds the top of the tower and benches and tables invite you to rest and meditate.
You can also take a diversion to eat or take a break at the beautiful shelter of Verloreneck. The menhirs surrounding it are an achievement in the neo-Druidic style of the 19th century. Even though they do not date back to Celtic times, this pleasant space will charm young and old alike.

- Hike in the forest where it is easy to lose the right path. We recommend you set off with a GPS app on your smartphone. - Variant: it is possible to go to the Heidenkopf and the Verloreneck from the Eichwald crossroads (then follow the markings of the Vosges club. 11km, 3h30)
