Montbéliard is a town full of art and history.

The Saône is one of the most beautiful rivers in France, with not too many locks flowing through an idyllic, fertile landscape. Here you'll see imposing farmhouses with traditional roofs and masonry and balconies decorated with flowers.

Each village around Dôle invites you to a festive feast and beckons with its particularly rich and well-preserved cultural heritage.

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

An impressive 394-metre-long tunnel leads to Besançon, allowing passage under the citadel and a detour around 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.
