A department with a rich and diversified nature, the Territory of Belfort is made up of forests, valleys, and especially the Ballon d'Alsace.
A nationally classified site, the Ballon d'Alsace reaches an altitude of 1247 metres. Le Ballon d'Alsace is ideal for holidays in the countryside and "Nature" stays, especially with its many waterfalls, hikes and mountain bike rides as well as its many sporting activities in summer and winter.
Lake Malsaucy is located 6km from Belfort. Its beaches, entertainment and water sports make it a privileged place, especially on sunny days.
The Etang des Forges covers 30 hectares and offers activities such as hiking, archery and fishing.
The Territory of Belfort is also famous for its heritage, including its famous citadel of Belfort. Dating from the 17th century, this Vauban building is a must to visit, with its underground, its animations and shows.
The Belfort lion is also to be seen, built by Bartholdi between 1875 and 1879, and classified as a historical monument. This 11-metre-high lion is the symbol of the inhabitants' resistance to the invasion of the Prussian army in 1870.
We also recommend that you visit the old town of Belfort, its flea market, its green spaces and its many cycle paths.
The Territory of Belfort is also a dynamic department with 2 major events: the largest music festival in France: the Eurockéennes and the FIMU (Festival International de Musique Universitaire which takes place during the Pentecost weekend).
Finally, the Miotte tower of Belfort and its 700 years of history, the fort of Basses Perches or that of Lefèbvre are worth a visit.
