A meeting with History
Hartmannswillerkopf is located on a rocky spur in the Vosges mountains, overlooking the Alsatian plain 956 m below. A National Monument now dominates the area and commemorates the armed struggle that took place here during the First World War when Hartmannswillerkopf was considered to be a vital strategic position by both the French and German armies.
With a bilingual guide (german-french), you will discover the National Monument, the Crypt, the Necropolis and the former battlefield. Besides the historical discovery, you will enjoy a magnificent panorama: a view of the Alsace plain, the Vosges Mountains, the Black Forest and sometimes of the Alps.
In the afternoon you have time to visit the Franco-German Historial by yourself. (It is not conducted with a guide). It is a multi-faceted facility fulfilling a historical, touristic and memorial role.
