Located at an altitude of 1.000 metres, Linge is a WW1 battlefield that was the theatre of an especially bloody confrontation.
This battlefield, listed as a historical site, has a stricking aspect : the infrastructure of the German defence system is very well preserved, and the relics of the French trenches in soft soil remain as a poignant testimony to the "war of the trenches".
The "Linge Memorial" Museum presents French and German objects found at the site: weapons munitions, personal items and relics.

Overlooking the Alsatian Plain from an altitude of 956 metres, Hartmannswillerkopf Mountain, called the "Vieil Armand" by the soldiers, was one of the main focal points of the fighting in the Vosges area during World War 1. The French and Germans fought hard over this strategic ridge, and the battles were especially bloody in 1915, when the summit changed hands eight times. One of the four national World War 1 monuments was erected there, in memory of the huge sacrifices made. This is a listed site and has since been placed under the auspices of the President of the Republic.
