Locals Michel and Patricia spent 17 years at another three-star hotel in Doubs before taking over The Originals City Hôtel La Balance in the Montbéliard old town in late 2019. “We found the hotel by accident. It’s the city’s oldest inn (1559) and we were immediately taken with the mosaic floor tiles in the hall, imposing staircase, parquet floors and majestic breakfast room.” Interestingly, the hotel takes its name from the former city scales. Even more so, Tchaïkovski once stayed here as did Marshal de Lattre de Tassigny who transformed the place into the military GHQ. Two of the hotel’s 47 rooms are dedicated to them. Though Michel and Patricia had work done, they made sure to preserve the hotel’s character. With mouldings, antiques and a cosy ambiance, the Hôtel La Balance has found the perfect compromise between modern demands and period beauty.

With its tapestry, parquet floors and period chandeliers, the breakfast room is striking. However it won’t harm morning appetites around the breakfast buffet with its savoury (cheeses, deli meats, eggs, etc.) and sweet (honey, jam, cereal, pastries, etc.) options. The Originals City Hôtel La Balance has no dining options but you’ll have no trouble finding just the restaurant with its city centre location. Guests looking to relax should head to the little lounge bar for a cosy ambiance.

Tips from your hotelier


High on its rock, the Château des Ducs de Wurtemberg looks out over the city. This is a must-visit in what is known as “the City of the Princes”. Its construction dates back to the 10th century but we especially admire its two enormous 15th and 16th century towers (the Henriette tower and the Frédéric tower) enhanced by the 18th-century main building. Inside, the museum looks back at Montbéliard history from prehistoric times, and houses a beautiful natural history gallery.

Tips from your hotelier


What a lovely name for this 10 h ornamental park which is both the city’s lung and an ‘island’ of relaxation. Sitting between the Rhône-Rhine canal and River Allan, it’s home to around a hundred plant species, an arboretum, a giant labyrinth and a Science Pavilion with exhibitions and events presenting science in a new light.

Its slogan: “much more than a museum, an adventure!” The museum showcases an extraordinary industrial saga spanning more than two centuries with products from Peugeot’s first activities (a coffee grinder, laminated pieces, saw blades, tools, etc.), its first vehicles, mass-produced vehicles, utility vehicles, cycles and motorcycles, racing cars and more.
