Castle of Ferrette

Circuit of the Three Castles of the Alsatian Jura

This  80 km marked hiking route crosses the Jura massif Alsatian and uses as a common thread the three castles of the territory (Ferrette, Morimont in Oberlarg and the Landskron in Leymen). It offers you the opportunity to recharge your batteries in the soothing setting of an unknown and unspoiled region. Between hiking and discovery, the marked route takes the most beautiful paths and trails that will lead you without great difficulty from one end to the other of this little piece of land forgotten by the frenzy and the ambient agitation. The Alsatian Jura opens its doors to you, it is up to you to enter.
