The marshes of Bourges

Make the most of your stay at the Hotel Continental to discover and escape to the Bourges marshes located 35 minutes from our hotel in Vierzon.

On the programme: a beautiful walk to be made on foot, wild and surprising landscapes at 5 minutes walk from the city centre of Bourges.

 

A stone's throw from the historic centre of Bourges


At the foot of the medieval quarter are the marshes of Bourges. They offer both a space for relaxation and discovery just a stone's throw from the historic centre of Bourges. These 135 hectares offer a surprising nature walk in the heart of the city!

 

A bit of history...


In Antiquity, these marshy lands slowed down Julius Caesar's progress in his conquest of Gaul in 52 BC. They ensured the defence of the city in the Middle Ages. From around the 17th century onwards, the marshlands were purchased by the Jesuits. They were drained and crossed by a network of canals to facilitate market gardening.

Today, several of the town's amateur gardeners continue the work of the market gardeners who cultivated this site in the 17th century.

 

A veritable little paradise of greenery


The marshes of Bourges are an open-air escape for walkers and cyclists alike. True lungs of the city of Bourges and just a few minutes from the old town, the marshes cover an area of 135 hectares divided into allotment gardens.

The upper marshes are accessible by boat, while the lower marshes are accessible on foot. You can find your way around the marshes using the signs on the marshland maps.
