The city of Besançon has been classified as a city of art and history since 1986. It has a rich heritage and many monuments bear witness to its history. Discover the Battant district which is now the largest protected area in France with its 237 hectares. During a short stay at our Kyriad Besançon hotel, you will be able to visit the citadel of Besançon culminating at 370 meters at the top of Saint-Étienne mountain. You will also find the regional archaeology service and a zoo. The next day, leave for Fort Griffon, redesigned by Vauban.
A week-long stay at our Kyriad accommodation will allow you to explore the regional archaeology service. Fourteen districts, completely different from each other, are waiting for you! Visit the district of Velotte that looks like a small country village, or Battant, the old neighborhood winemakers. The city also has many fortifications as well as military buildings. Vesontio’s arenas still remain today as banks and foundations. You will be able to nourish your trip with pleasant memories and enjoy the comfort of the rooms at our 3-star Kyriad hotels.
Opt for a ride aboard the boat ride named... the Vauban! With the family, discover the city of Besançon under a completely different profile. Enjoy the scenery and be impressed by the two locks and the tunnel that passes under the mountain where the citadel stands. Our Kyriad hotel in Besançon will welcome you for a stay in peace. Take a tour of the citadel and treat your family to a trip to the zoo, which will please young and old alike.
