Description

Hiking around Saulxures is a great way to enjoy the gentle landscapes. Saulxures is probably far older than 1513, when it is first recorded. The background of the name is disputed. Some say it comes from salt, while others believe it was a place where willows (saules in French) grew. The village was renamed "Salzern" after annexation to the Reich in 1871. It had 1,200 inhabitants in the 19th century, compared with 530 today. View map
