Canal du Rhone au Rhin

From Dôle to Besançon, the Canal du Rhone au Rhin flows between rocky cliffs and wooded slopes.

An impressive 394-metre-long tunnel leads to Besançon, allowing you to pass under the citadel and bypass the town. Besançon is a town full of fountains and refined houses. From the quay there is an easy path to the citadel of the builder Vauban.
