AttractionsBelfort France

Situated on the eastern edge of the Franche-Comté and bordering Alsace's Vosges mountains Belfort is a sometimes-overlooked attraction in France. Its Citadel is well worth the visit if for no other reason than to walk in its battle scared grounds and to see the Lion created by Auguste Bartholdi who also created the Statue of Liberty.
The Citadel can easily be visited in two hours and makes for a nice family outing with lots of room for the kids to run around. Don't miss the view from a top the Châteaux; there is nice view of Belfort and the surrounding countryside.
Up until the 20th century Belfort has known as a military town for its Citadel, which gave it its name. This changed when Belfort became the location for construction of the TGV high-speed trains. One of which can be seen from the A36 autoroute.

Below are a few of the many military statues that can be found in Belfort.
