The Vosges are a range of low mountains in eastern France, directly west of the Alsace region, and near France’s border with Germany. Together with the Palatinate Forest (Palatinate Forest) to the north on the German side of the border, they form a single geomorphological unit and low mountain range of around 8,000 square km (3,100 sq mi) in area. It runs in a north-northeast direction and forms the western boundary of the Upper Rhine Plain. The highest peak in the Vosges is the Grand Ballon (1,424 m or 4,672 ft).
The Vosges provides one of the many types of oak used in winemaking.
