A film by Annette and Klaus Scheurich
Documentary (43min), ZDF/Arte/, 2010
Sunlit forests, marshy floodplains and colourful sandstone formations. The Vosges is a multifaceted low mountain region bursting with life in the summer months. Chamois, deer and hedgehogs abound in the forests and hills, the valley marshes are alive with songbirds, insects and frogs; stork nests adorn the roofs of the picturesque villages and towns, and cows contentedly munch the lush grass of high meadow pastures. We experience the Vosges from spring through autumn, in all kinds of weather – as a habitat into which man’s traditions have been introduced harmoniously and the wilderness still finds space of its own.
