Discover the history of Hartmannswillerkopf

Hartmannswillerkopf, renamed "Vieil Armand" by the French press during the First World War, is located on a rocky spur in the Vosges mountains, overlooking the Alsatian plain 956m below.

A National Monument now dominates the area and commemorates the armed struggle that took place here during the First World War, and notably 1915, when Hartmannswillerkopf was considered to be a vital strategic position by both the French and German armies.
