The Essential
The ideal way to discover the town of Neuf-Brisach is from the sky. Seen from above, the octagonal star-shaped layout of the fortress built on a plain in the 17C by Vauban is extremely striking. "Of all the diamonds in the crown of France, the most beautiful is the fortress of the Rhine," said Louis XIV who commissioned the fort. Since 2008, this masterpiece of military architecture is a Unesco World Heritage Site.
