Belfort, the City
The administrative centre of the territory which carries its name, Belfort is rich in history, for the city is located in a strategic location, commonly known as The Belfort Gap”.
On the banks of the river Rhine (50km to the east) and the Rhône (150km to the south), Belfort is the only flat territory which links these different valleys, and is wedged in between Les Vosges and Le Jura.
Belfort’s development has therefore reflected European history, and the many different wars.
