Installation of stairs to come

For those who are impatient, the stairs should be installed early April 2022, depending on weather conditions.

But why are they uninstalled every winter?

The highest dune in Europe is a monument natural, alive, in perpetual motiont. Under the action of the wind its shape and position evolve. On average, scientists calculated that the Dune moved each year by 1 to 5 meters inland.

In winter, the more frequent gusts of wind make it easier to bury the staircase. It is therefore dismantled every year, just after the All Saints holidays, and reinstalled in the Spring.
