Training Weekend in the Vosges (May Bank Holiday)

Passes and savoir vivre in Alsace – 30/05-2/06/2019

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 May Bank Holiday weekend with Epic Climbs.

Due to the demand in 2018 we're organising two weekends: the same short trip will be hosted at June Bank Holiday (31.5. to 3.6. 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.

Klaus – The Diesel

quäldich-Guide Klaus Beier

Came to Epic Climbs in 2009 after the first Tour of Germany, and has been a guide since 2010. You'll never get him worked up. After a brief, short-haired interlude he's got his neck-carpet back again.
