TOURISM IN FRANCHE-COMTÉ

The Doubs offers a large choice of great places of interest to discover with its big forests crossed by numerous hiking trails, its beautiful villages and its fortified city Besançon, capital of Franche-Comté.

Forests, rivers, vast green spaces and the "mille étangs" (thousand ponds) plateau characterise the Haute-Saône nicknamed the “green island".

The Jura massif, composed of wonderful landscapes of spruce forests, high mountain pastures, lakes and waterfalls, rich built heritage and delicious specialities are some of the features of the department of Jura.

Smallest département in France, the Territoire de Belfort is home to the city of Belfort and its imposing citadel, floral villages, the Malsaucy lake and the Alsace mountains.
