Alsace Lorraine

THE BLUE LINE OF THE VOSGES

It would be easy to dismiss it as a myth. And yet, the “blue line of the Vosges” does indeed exist. From the modest heights of the Ballon d’Alsace, it appears just above the smooth profiles of the mountaintops. Whenever the slightest mist forms, bluish highlights begin to blur their rounded contours, stretching as far as the eye can see. The region palette is enriched by the vivid dark green of the forests and the bright reflections of primeval lakes like Gérardmer, Longemer or Retournemer. Water is omnipresent here, from ponds to waterfalls, rivers, springs…

In the modern era, the city of Nancy is best known for the scope and splendor of its Stanislas Square, a Unesco World Heritage Site. Lunéville is home to a castle known as the “Versailles of Lorraine,” while Strasbourg manages to be at once typically Alsatian and decidedly international. The seat of the European Parliament, the city that Goethe said “puts the soul into motion” enchants the visitor with its pedestrian center, its legendary winstubs and its hearty dynamism. Colmar, on the other side of Alsace from the Grand Ried region, is the capital of the Alsatian wines beloved by Christian Dior. According to the couturier, “A small glass of Alsatian wine is like a light dress, a spring flower, the ray of sunshine that brightens life.”
