Take a leisurely stroll through the open air museum that is Dijon’s old town, with the Palace of the Dukes and Estates of Burgundy, Gothic churches and cathedrals, magnificent town houses with glazed tile roofs and remarkably well-preserved medieval half-timbered houses. The city’s various museums reveal countless priceless treasures, from the medieval art collections of the Musée des Beaux-Arts to the works of the greatest contemporary artists housed in Le Consortium.
And nature is never far away. Just a few minutes from the city centre, you can walk, cycle or ride a moped along the Burgundy Canal or through the vineyards. As night falls, Dijon awakes with cultural and party activities. Cellars turn into concert stages, theatres open their doors and you can continue the evening in one of the city’s many bars.
