A weekend in Besançon lets you immerse yourself in its history. For this, take in the city’s various majestic landmarks: Citadel of Besançon, Hôpital Saint-Jacques, Fontaine de la Place Jean Comet, Cathédrale Saint-Jean, and more. Visit the astronomical clock to discover a technological masterpiece, which is wound up by hand every day. When evening comes, stop at one of our Campanile hotels in Besançon. For your second day, visit the Botanical Garden of Besançon and the Jardin des Sens for a 100% nature day.
If you’re staying in Besançon for a week, immerse yourself in history by heading to the Black Gate, a Gallo-Roman triumphal arch located in the Saint-Jean district. The domus of the Palais de Justice and the domus of Collège Lumière and the vestiges of the Arènes de Vesontio also guarantee that you’ll travel back in time. For a different way of seeing Besançon, hop on a boat and go under the Citadel Bridge. Don’t forget to visit the Museum of Fine Arts and Archaeology, the Museum of Time and Le Pavé dans la Mare, a contemporary art center.
For fun and to spend time as a family, enjoy your stay in Besançon to visit the Parc Aventure Franois, where seven shaded trails await young and old alike. You can also opt to go down river on the Doubs in a canoe/kayak to explore the region’s landscapes and get a breath of fresh air.
