For those looking to explore this beautiful part of France there are many sights to enjoy. One of these is the Chateau du Haut-Koenigsbourg, an impressive castle built in 1250 which overlooks nearby valleys. Another must-see attraction is Fort de Belfort which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008 due to its rich history.
In addition to its impressive landscapes Bourgogne-Franche-Comte also boasts an interesting history. During World War II it served as a base for Charles de Gaulle's Free French Forces during their fight against Nazi occupation. As such, it played an important role in the French Resistance movement and has become a symbol of national pride ever since.
