Our short break in the Vosges has become a tradition: 2017 will be the fourth time that we've met up in Wintzfelden in Alsace, to enjoy four great days in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere far from the madding crowd. Ballons and cols – the Vosges offers striking mountains, long climbs, breathtaking views and untamed low mountain scenery. For this edition we've slightly changed the routes again, so that even repeat participants can explore something new. 

Unchanged, of course, is our charming hotel in tranquil surroundings and the varied Vosges scenery. These guarantee us good physical challenges and plenty of chance to enjoy typical Alsatian savoir vivre.

Your May Bank Holiday weekend with Epic Climbs

Due to the demand in 2017 we're organising two weekends: the same short break will be hosted at June Bank Holiday (15.6. - 18.6. 2017).


The Guides

Torsten – Guide No. 1

quäldich-Guide Torsten Kähler

One of Epic Climbs' main men, with training grounds in the Münsterland and Austria. Often, to thunderous applause, voted the best and most understanding guide, because for him the sun shines longer and the mountains are flatter...

Tilmann – The Tea Drinker

quäldich-Guide Tilmann Böß

Drinks coffee too, not just tea, and enjoys long climbs, which unfortunately don't exist in the Vogelsberg area where he comes from. So he enjoys the Alps even more. In the French Alps he knows just about every peak by name, and often knows far more than the tour leader.

Uli – The Sommelier

quäldich-Guide Ulrich Klein

Uli's natural habitat, both at work and on the bike, is the slopes, especially wherever wine and culture flourish. As Epic Climbs' official sommelier, he's a great addition to any table, too.
