The Belfort Sundgau is a continuation of the Alsatian Sundgau, south of the Territory of Belfort. Like its Alsatian neighbour and nearby Switzerland, it has some wonderful half-timbered houses, adorned with flowers in the spring, like in Réchésy or Suarce.
The Belfort Sundgau is a region with an abundant natural environment, offering all outdoor pursuits, from hiking in all its forms to more athletic activities: the Francovélosuisse, for example, is a greenway that takes cycling tourists all the way to Switzerland.
A land of legends including that of the Bishop of Saint-Dizier and the "Devil's Step", the region is also a major fish-farming area, with its many ponds. The territory even has its own Fried Carp Route!
Where there is water, there are mills: the Belfort Sundgau had many in the past, and the one at Courtelevant remains one of the most famous.
Don't miss the beautiful floral villages and towns of Beaucourt, Recouvrance and Delle, a pretty medieval town, and the towns that have come to symbolise the age of industry: Beaucourt, the pioneering French industrial town of Japy, and Grandvillars.
