A sharing and welcoming spirit that has been known for ages !
Although it was surrounded by a Medieval castle at the time, several times demolished and rebuilt, it was by the end of the nineteenth century that the visitors of the Hirtzenstein had been welcomed in a farm inn . For more than a century, hikers and travelers had come to admire and enjoy the beauty of the Vosges mountains by making a stop or spending some days at the Hirzenstein.
