At 581 m, the Grand Wintersberg (German: Großer Wintersberg) is the highest hill in the North Vosges in Alsace, France.
The Grand Wintersberg lies about four kilometres northwest of Niederbronn-les-Bains. The massif separates the valleys of the Falkensteinerbach and the Schwarzbach. At its summit, which is made of Bunter Sandstone, stands a 25 metre high observation tower, which offer hikers an outstanding panoramic view over the North Vosges, the Palatine Forest and the Upper Rhine Plain across to the Black Forest.
At the 514 metre high saddle between Grand and Petit Wintersberg (Col de la Liese) is a hut, the Chalet du Wintersberg, managed by the Vosges Club, as well as the Liese, a Gallo-Roman, sphinx-like sandstone relief. Celtic relicts may also be found on the hill of Ziegenberg to the southeast.
There's a trail leading to the summit. Grand Wintersberg is one of the 7 peaks along the multi-day Long-distance trail Donnersberg-Donon.
