Embed this item to access it offline
A pleasant loop to discover one of the ponds in the area of La Petite-Pierre: Imsthal.
In the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Vosges du Nord, this loop allows to discover Imsthal, region of ponds full of fish. First acquired by a palatine count in 1503, texts evoke the existence of a castle around 1850. However, it was replaced by a farm. It is interesting to note that the origin of the family now owning the neighboring inn dates back to 1757!

    The House of the Pagans

    Built in 1534 at the initiative of Palatine Count Louis V, its architecture, unique in Alsace, is as much civil as miliary. Built on a rocky promontory overlooking the forest, the site was occupied by a watchtower in the Gallo-Roman era, as evidenced by traces of foundations in the cellar. Considered a high vibratory place, it would mark the location of a Celtic place of worship.
