    Territoire de Belfort Details

    The symbol of the city of Belfort is a large pink lion of Vosges sandstone. It is one of Belforts main attractions. Its sculpture is Frederick Bartholdi, of Statue of Liberty fame. Belfort is also home to a raucous affair. The Eurorockéennes is Frances largest open-air festival. At the Château, a different musical experience waits. Belfort culture, in this instance, includes free jazz in the summer months. Admittedly, however, one of the greatest Belfort attractions is the Citadel. This sprawls across the mountaintop and features a vast array of different types of fortifications. The architect, as is common in France, is the work of Louis XIV engineer and architect, Vauban. The Porte de Brinsch of this structure is in perfect condition. It still carries the motto of Louis XIV. Belfort did survive many attacks. In fact, Belfort history and culture proudly refer to the city as the City of Three Sieges. Beyond this grim aspect, you can wander the Rose Garden or attend the largest flea market in the east of France.
