What to visit during your stay in Belfort?
From the Lac de la Seigneurie campsite, set off to discover the Territoire de Belfort and the town of Belfort (15 km away), a land of contrasts with a wealth of heritage. You will discover all the secrets of the impregnable Citadel of Belfort, Vauban’s masterpiece. Whether you are a history buff or simply curious, you can admire the fortress as well as the town and its surroundings from the panoramic terrace or with the little Belfort tourist train.
