A Sunday in January with quite moderate weather invited to a small trip by car. France is open for fully vaccinated and so I drove after a long time once again in the Northern Vosges. The Northern Vosges are opposite the Black Forest on the French side of the Upper Rhine Valley. The special thing about this region is the turbulent history and the many defense works from the first and second world war. In fact, there are hundreds of often huge bunkers and thousands of small bunkers scattered in the fields.
