There are four four monuments on the Ballon d'Alsace, where three departments meet:
  1. Notre Dame du Ballon, in Haut-Rhin (almost on the border with Territoire de Belfort).
  2. Memorial for René Pottier, in Vosges
  3. Jeanne d'Arc, in Vosges (maybe 5 meters from the border with Territoire de Belfort).
  4. Monument en mémoire des démineurs, exactly on the border of Vosges and Territoire de Belfort
