Abreschviller is located in the north eastern tip of France in the Lorraine department. Abreschviller governs a rather land large area, but almost 90% is forested mountains. The nature can be best discovered in the old steam train that starts from the town. This train takes a 12km tour into forests and the valley of the Sarre Rouge River.
The Hillclimb travels in the southwest direction towards Saint Quirin. This town is easily recognized by the 11th Century Haute-Chappelle. This small church is build on a hilltop above the town center. The same concept can also be seen some 15 kilometres to the northeast of Abreschviller. Here at Dabo at the end of the 19th Century a Chapel was build at the highest point (664m). From the top you will get a panoramic view of the Vosges Mountains. From a large distance it looks like the base of the Chapel is bizarrely oversized. But on closer inspection it turns out the chapel is build on an exposed Sandstone Rock Formation. Contrary to the southern and central Vosges Mountains, the Northern Vosges are covered by a sandstone layer. This sandstone erodes faster than the Granite and Gneiss of the southern Vosges, exposing oddly shaped rock formations and large cliffs. Around Dabo quite a few can be discovered. Although saying the Northern Vosges is technically not correct as they start some 30km further north of Abreschviller at Saverne and are protected in a nature reserve.
Abreschviller lies halfway between Nancy in the west and Strasbourg in the east, both 85 kilometres by car.
