OUR GUIDED TOURS IN BELFORT

Walk through the corridors of Vauban’s military engineering. Walk from half-moons to bastions, and from ditches to curtain walls, to discover the only example in France of the Second System of Fortifications of this genius.
The Historic Heart of the city
In Belfort, the historical heritage is concentrated within the Old Town surrounded by the ramparts. Discover the history of Belfort in the alleys of its old town, setting of the many treasures of Belfort.
In the Lions’ Footsteps
Dust off the façades, wander through the alleys, look up and you will discover more than a hundred sculpted, painted, engraved lions… Sometimes vestiges of the past, sometimes decorative elements, they are mischievously hidden.

OUR VISITS AROUND BELFORT
The Frédéric Japy Museum in Beaucourt
In 1977, Frédéric Japy moved to Beaucourt and produced watch blanks but above all machine tools which were faster and less expensive.
