Plateau des Mille Etangs
Remnants of an ice age

A landscape shaped by time

12,000 years ago in the southwestern Vosges Mountains, the melting glaciers forged an exceptional landscape, creating dozens of lakes and ponds criss-crossed by streams. Recognised as a European Natura 2000 site for its remarkable natural heritage, the plateau's mosaic of landscapes provides shelter for a wide range of plants and wildlife.
