Fackelwanderung Mont Royal

Discover the ruins of the Mont Royal fortress during a winter torchlight hike.

In 1687, the French Sun King Louis XIV had his ingenious architect Vauban build a gigantic fortress on the peninsula mountain high above Traben. But already in 1698 it was destroyed by the French themselves. It was not until the last century that excavations were carried out on Mont Royal using original plans from Paris archives. Discover the exciting history of the former fortress Mont Royal during a circular walk in winter.

Depending on the weather, the tour takes place with flashlights instead of flashlights.
