the activities of the youth hostel Besançon

Besançon is still a little known city, offering beautiful panoramas on its hills and beautiful cultural discoveries. The Citadel of Besançon, built according to the plans of Vauban, is a delight for tourists. In the sumptuous Granvelle palace, we discover the Museum of Time and we marvel at the Astronomical Clock as we descend to the house where Victor Hugo was born. The hills of Bregille, Chaudanne, Rosemont and Chapelle des Buis offer cyclists and hikers a privileged place to get some fresh air, for a lunch on the grass or an afternoon.
