Below the summit

Classified in a Natura 2000 zone, the Markstein is a winter sports, summer hiking and relaxation resort where you can practice summer sledging and paragliding. Located between 1040 and 1265m on the Route des Crêtes (road of the ridges), it forms a cross-country skiing area with the Breitfirst site and the high Nordic route which links it to the Grand Ballon, the highest point of the Vosges massif.
