The strategic importance of this location is clear when one sees the great observation capability of any troops holding the top of this hill. There are benches from which to enjoy the magnificent views and I had my lunch here.

This American monument dedicated to the thousands of American servicemen who loat their lives taking this heavily fortified hill from the Prussian Army in WWI. Our visit was marred by bicyclists who decided to run down the stairs on their mountain bikes--tacky!
