Top 5 travel tips

1. White gold

The royal Grande Saline salt works in Arc-et-Senans date back to the period of absolutism that King Louis XV had built. The gigantic salt factory was in operation until 1895. Today, the UNESCO World Heritage Site attracts 100,000 visitors every year who can take a tour of the salt works, the director's house, workers' apartments and administrative offices. Interesting background knowledge can be found in the salt museum of the complex.

2. Impressive monastery complex of the Middle Ages

In Baume-les-Messieurs there is the important Benedictine abbey of Saint-Pierre from 869, built by Abbé Bernon. The monastery was closed during the French Revolution and has been a listed building since 1862. Visitors can enter the three inner courtyards and visit the elaborately decorated parish church or apartments.

3. Thundering masses of water

A breathtaking natural spectacle awaits you between Bonlieu and Doucier, where the seven waterfalls of the river Hérisson are located. Along a path of 3,100 metres, you will pass hidden caves, clear water basins and reach the Cascade de l'Eventail at your destination, which drops over 65 metres into the depths. The Museum Haus der Wasserfälle is also located here. The interesting exhibition informs you about the geology, fauna and history of the waterfalls.

4. Turquoise blue bathing paradise

About 20 kilometres east of the small town of Lons-le-Saunier, the Lac de Chalain extends between limestone cliffs at an altitude of 486 metres. The azure blue water of the lake, which covers an area of 2.3 square kilometres and is up to 32 metres deep, radiates from a distance. The natural water is an oasis for bathers and water sports enthusiasts. Guarded beaches and the Les Lagons water park await you on the eastern shore. A variety of restaurants, the Lake Dwelling Museum on the western shore, fishing tours and a climbing park provide variety.

5. Mystical world underground

At the source of the river Orbe you can immerse yourself in a fabulous world. The caves of Vallorbe, also called fairy caves, can be visited during a guided tour.
