This row of houses / buildings is pretty incredible - reminds me of honfleur - what a magnificent line of buildings and all kept for some time - one of the wonders of the architecture world

PARIS IN FRANCHE COMTE
Jun 2019 • Couples
What if the Quai de la Seine were in Franche Comté ? What if the urban design ideas of the 'siècle des lumières' (enlightenment century) were developed everywhere in France, and not just in Paris? Quai Vauban is the absolute proof France is beautiful not only in Paris but in the regions where the City ideal was conceived and invented. In Besançon genius in urban design happened and we can verify it, night and day, night especially.

Beautifully proportioned riverfront houses
Jun 2018 • Friends
Besancon is a city in which you stroll. The river is an integral part of the city and this wonderful water front row of houses is remarkable. This was once the centre of clockmaking. The town was immensely wealthy as these and other wonderful buildings testify. Just take your time walking or catch the tram or river boat and enjoy this timeless place.

Beautiful architecture

Very well preserved and maintained row of 18th century houses with arcades underneath. Situated along the Doubs river, another must see for visitors to Besancon

going for a walk along the river

I had no idea how Besancon could be. The more I was surprised when I saw the quai and walked along the quai to the city center. It´s like an old town but really ´vivante´and good for shopping ;)

Quai Vauban is a great place to walk and view the scenery, especially if the weather is nice. Some nice cafés and restaurants around.

Quiet and relaxing

This promenade by the river is awesome, it reminds me of the Quais of Paris! You will enjoy and maybe stop off at L'Alsacien for a bear after your stroll!
