The Linge Memorial museum

The Linge Memorial museum

Parking Free parking for cars



The Linge is one of the most important places of the battle of the Hautes-Vosges during the First World War.

Nearly 20,000 French and German soldiers were killed, wounded or missing. The well-preserved German defense system can still be seen today on the easily accessible battlefield.

The museum presents a collection of objects found on the battlefield and offers you an immersion in the life of the soldier at that time and in that place.

A 20-minute video will show you the historical context of the battle of the Linge in 1915.

You can take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your visit with a walk in the mountains and, why not, a stop at a farm inn.


From 1st May to 11th November everyday from 9 am to 12.30 pm and 2 to 6 pm.

    National Necropolis of Sigolsheim - KAYSERSBERG VIGNOBLE

    The Sigolsheim necropolis is a military cemetery created by Marshal de Lattre de Tassigny when he proposed to regroup the bodies of the soldiers of the First French Army after the Second World War.

    Located on the hill of "Blutberg", which means "mountain of blood", 1589 soldiers are buried on an area of 18,285 m², including 792 graves of North African soldiers and 15 graves of Jewish soldiers.

    In the direct vicinity of the Necropolis, at the level of the car park, stands the American monument which faces the Alsace plain. This monument was erected in 1995 in honour of the American soldiers who died in Alsace for freedom.

    You can visit this monument on a a walk trough the vineyards starting from Sigolsheim. For a short break, take advantage of the picnic table  nearby.

    Access to the site is forbidden from 6pm to 6am.

    This hill combines the scenic beauty of the Alsace wine route with a place of remembrance following the tragic history of the region.

    National Necropolis Carrefour Duchesne - ORBEY

    Located near the Tête des Faux in the heart of the forest, the Carrefour Duchesne National Necropolis reveals itself at the crossroads.

    The genesis of this atypical cemetery is the result of the bloody battles that took place in the Tête des Faux massif during the First World War.
    It was named after Major Duchesne, battalion commander of the 215th RI, who died on December 2, 1914 at the Tête des Faux. The cemetery contains the graves of 294 soldiers and an ossuary where 116 soldiers are buried.

    On the site of a former important military camp, today this place full of history blends harmoniously with the natural environment that surrounds it. Depending on the weather, it is surprising to observe the deep atmosphere that emerges.

    The Duchesne Cemetery can be discovered by hiking or mountain biking from the Col du Calvaire. In winter, the cross-country ski trails of the Lac Blanc resort are also close by.
