|Description ||The Appenthal menhirs are the most Easterly Menhirs Allignements in France that are known at present. Seen here from South East. It consists of about 39 mostly upright menhirs of up to 1.30 Meters tall in a Y shaped configuration in the woods about 200 Meters to the East of the town of Guebwiller in Alsace. Most stones are about 50 Cm tall and a park bench occupies the center, where more stones should have been. The Club Vosgien keeps the place clear and marked the path. The allignements are pointed North-South and North West to South East, and both have a slight curvature. As result of some local arts and crafts event, a fake ceramic menhir was placed there, but now lies toppled.|
