Hiking trail D03: Befestigte Positionen nördlich des Donon

67130 Grandfontaine - Find

The Donon and its surroundings marked the border between France and the German Empire making it the scene for violent combat from August 1914. It was such a big issue that it was deemed essential to build a barrier of defences. These untouched constructions, trenches and shelters are now the breadcrumb trail through a determined face-off between 2 armies prepared to do anything and everything to defend their countries...
