A mere hop, jump and fairy skip across the border from Germany and Switzerland, Belfort is as Alsatian as it is Jurassien. Historically part of Alsace, it only became part of the Franche-Comté region in 1921. The city centrepiece is a Vauban citadel, host to open-air concerts in summer and the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire year-round. On duty at its foot is an 11m-tall lion sculpted in sandstone by Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi (of Statue of Liberty fame) to commemorate Belfort’s resistance to the Prussians in 1870–1871.
