At the end of the Vallée de Villé, on the border of the departments of Bas-Rhin and Vosges, on the municipal bench of Urbeis, the Climont mountain offers a magnificent 360 ° panorama of the Vosges mountains. The only condition to fully enjoy it: climb to the top of the Julius tower at the top of Climont.
If you only want to access to the viewpoint, you will need around 45 minutes at the fastest to climb and a little less time for the return by taking the same path. The route is relatively simple, from the D214 road at the entrance of Climont hamlet, take the path that goes up into the forest with yellow cross markers, which you just have follow to the summit! Only small trap, by crossing the forest path 1 take on your left, then about a third of the ride, once arrived at the fork in the forest road 2, continue on the right uphill to arrive at the foot of the Julius tower . A last effort will still be necessary to climb the 78 steps and finally enjoy the 360° panorama of the Vosges.
As usual the best time to enjoy the view will be sunrise or sunset.
If you do not just want to go back and forth, it is also possible to extend the trek by going down by the north slope of Climont mountain (always yellow cross markers) and finish with the Climont tour by following the blue circle markers, preferably by the left if you do not want to walk on the road to starting point.
