Escape the urban hustle and bustle by exploring, on foot or by bike, the Berry Channel or Green Gap in the middle of nature. Meet in the Fichaux Meadows Garden, theArchdiocese or even at Square Jean de Berry for a green walk, and why not a picnic? And of course take a stroll through the  Marsh of Bourges, the green lung of the city that you never get tired of.
