Star trekking stay to discover the Three Castles of the Alsatian Jura

This 2 day / 1 night weekend (from 60 € / pers) offers you the possibility of recharging your batteries in the soothing setting of an unknown and preserved region. Between hiking and discovery, paths and paths full of charm will lead you without great difficulty from one end to the other of this little piece of land forgotten by the frenzy and the surrounding bustle. The Alsatian Jura opens its doors to you. It's up to you to get in. The proposed walks are the most beautiful in the sector. A complete guidebook will be sent to you upon your arrival which describes the three proposed circuits.

Example of a 2-day / 1-night stay in a star:

Day 1 : welcome to Ferrette, a picturesque medieval town during the day. Walking tour around the city (2h30), the opportunity to visit the ruined castle and the city of the powerful counts of Ferrette. Narrow and romantic paths lead to amazing limestone promontories and the mysterious Cave of the Dwarfs, where a famous legend is told.
Overnight at Hotel Restaurant Collin **

Day 2 : breakfast. Departure by car to Oberlarg (10 min). Walk (3h30-4h) through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Sundgau. The Mannlefelsen rock shelter, a major Mesolithic site in Alsace, precedes the Ebourbettes which tell of the escape of General Giraud in 1942. Further on, the Morimont ruins offer an interesting history lesson on the adaptation of a medieval castle with firearms. Overnight in Ferrette.

Possible option: additional night at the Hotel Restaurant Collin **

Day 3 : breakfast. Departure by car for Leymen (15min). Discovery of the Landskron, a dreaded castle until 1814 that a Franco-Swiss association maintains with passion, and Mariastein, where crowds of pilgrims come to pray every year, are the highlights of this superb 3:30 hr walk which offers beautiful panoramas , on both sides of the border.
