Detection of a gamma-ray source above 300 GeV is reported, confirming the unidentified source MGRO J1908+06, discovered by the Milagro collaboration at a median energy of 20 TeV. The source was observed during 27 h as part of the extension of the H.E.S.S. Galactic plane survey to longitudes >30degr. HESS J1908+063 is detected at a significance level of 10.9 s with an integral flux above 1 TeV of (3.76+-0.29stat+-0.75sys)x10^-12 ph cm^-2 s^-1, and a spectral photon index Gamma =doi:10.1051/0004-6361/200811357 fatcat:zr2g5sw4qzgw5jbxjakxdlwp7a
