Our short trip to the Vosges has become a tradition: 2018 will be the fifth 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 June Bank Holiday weekend with Epic Climbs

Due to the demand, in 2018 we're organising two weekends: the same short trip will be hosted on May Bank Holiday weekend (10th to 13th May 2018).


The Guides

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.

Detlef – der Norddeutsche

quäldich-Guide Detlef

Aus dem hohen Norden kommend und immer nach dem Motto: Der Wind sind die Berge des Nordens, aber eben auch nicht alles. Daher gerne in der Tramuntana und im Allgäu mit der Parole bergauf beschleunigen unterwegs.

Jörg - The Flatlander

quäldich-Guide Joerg Lenz

Comes from the Münster area and earned his climbing spurs by riding all (!) the passes and summits in the Baumberge hills. But as his Epic Climbs name reveals, doesn't mind the less mountainous rides.

Getting there
