As a result of its 4 centuries of shared history with the Duchy of Würtemberg, the Pays de Montbéliard, which bears the Ville et Pays d’Art et d’Histoire label, still maintains the codes of a Germanic tradition and heritage. Open to many influences, this « small country » is a breeding ground for ideas that are new, social, philosophical and scientific and it has become a land of inventors and knowledge thanks to the likes of Cuvier, Oehmichen, Japy and, of course, Peugeot . It benefits from being a leader in terms of industrial tourism. Blessed with an enchanting and exceptional end of year event, the Lumières de Noël, and an authentic and traditional Christmas market, the area boasts a hotel capacity of more than 800 rooms in the 2 and 3 star category, with over 500 rooms of this type in Belfort alone. Accessible by TGV from Paris in 2h15, and located 50 min from Basel-Mulhouse airport, this major economic zone between Strasbourg and Lyon occupies a central position in Europe on the Rhine-Rhone axis and close to the major cities of Switzerland.
