The bride and groom's aisle

Home Natural sites and gardens The bride and groom's aisle

As its name suggests, Bride and Groom's Alley is an avenue of lime trees planted by newlyweds in the 18th and 19th centuries. The path connects the heights of the commune of Waldersbach to the Col de la Perheux. This tradition was founded by the famous pastor of Ban de la Roche, Jean-Frédéric Oberlin, encouraging newlyweds to plant a tree, a symbol of their love. The alley has been included in the national file of classified sites since 1938 in memory of the pastor's attachment to this place. See the map
