    This route is a link between two massifs, one crystalline, the other limestone, which contributes to the diversity of the the ndscape and sites: the forests of the southern slopes of the Ballon d'Alsace, the crests of the Doubs valley, the vineyards of Arbois and Château-Chalon, famous for its "vin jaune". There are also numerous centres of cultural interest with Besançon, and its citadel designed by Vauban, the royal salt works of Arc-et-Senans and Lons-le-Saunier, the birthplace of Rouget-de-Lisle.
