Besançon alongside the Doubs
What's so special about Besançon? It is a town of greenery surrounded by 6 hills and set on a bend of the river Doubs. We recommend exploring the gardens, parks and tree-lined riverbanks either on foot or by bike!
It's time to set off on a peaceful exploration of the great outdoors to discover the pretty little areas of greenery along the banks of the river including Gare d'Eau and Parc Micaud. Keep your eyes peeled because there are lots of birds here such as colonies of cormorants, goosanders or the discreet kingfisher.
