GR, long distance footpath across the Ballon d’Alsace

A new route for the GR5 in the Territoire de Belfort

The GR5 is one of the most popular long-distance footpaths in Europe. In France, its route crosses the ranges of the Vosges and the Jura. The Territoire de Belfort forms an attractive link between these two mountain ranges with four major sites of interest: the Ballon d’Alsace (listed national site), the Malsaucy (outstanding natural site and venue for Les Eurockéennes de Belfort), the Salbert (with its fort and panoramic view, last hill in the Vosges and first in the Jura) and the city of Belfort, a convenient place to stay with easy access to the Belfort-Montbéliard TGV station.
