Family vacation in Belfort
Stroll through the historic streets during your weekend in Belfort and discover its monuments. Don’t miss the Citadel, constructed in 1648 by Gaspard de Champagne. At the bottom of the Citadel sits the Lion of Belfort, a sandstone beast measuring 72 ft. It commemorates the siege of 1870 and the many lives it cost. After a good night’s rest in a Première Classe hotel in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, plan a visit to the Fine Arts Museum, before enjoying a culinary specialty such as sauerkraut.

Stroll along the hills and stop at the forts of Hatry, Miotte and Justice to admire the sublime panorama over Belfort and the Vosges mountains. On the way back to Belfort, take a detour to the Saint-Joseph church and the Saint-Christophe cathedral. Finally, discover the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Fine Arts before taking a trip to the Vosges Nature Park in Mulhouse or Lutterbach.
