This history is revealed in the beautiful Ecomuseum, a former industrial distillery featuring collections of objects from yesteryear.

Fougerolles, a land of tastes!

Did you know ?

At the gateway to the Ballons des Vosges Regional Nature Park, Fougerolles-Saint-Valbert covers just over 5 hectares. Its landscapes and those of the Kirsch appellation zone are dominated by the pre-verger orchards, a local feature of the large-scale production of cherries, a speciality of the area.

This speciality has been developed over the years, in particular with Kirsch, which obtained its AOC in 2010, but also thanks to the many derivative recipes devised by local distilleries and distillers. This cherry-based culture has earned the region the label Site Remarquable du Goût (Outstanding Taste Site), as well as being listed as part of France's intangible cultural heritage.

In spring, the magic happens in and around Fougerolles...

In April, almost 10,000 cherry trees blossom in the Kirsch AOC zone. It's a very short-lived magic (2 weeks at most), much appreciated by locals and visitors alike!

The landscapes are full of Japanese flair, with occasional walks organised to take in the explosion of pink blossom. Our advice: admire the view from the Blanzey viewpoint!

Of course, we can't predict the exact date, which is usually around mid-April. To keep up to date with the cherry blossom season, follow the social networks of the Ecomusée and the Fougerolles distilleries!

Cherry festivals !

Fougerolles hosts a number of key events throughout the year, bringing people together to celebrate local specialities!
