Which places to visit in Burgundy?

Burgundy is a region of France rich in history, culture and gastronomy.

There are many places to visit, but there are a few must-sees that are worth the detour.

First of all, the city of Dijon with its many museums, its cathedral and its cobbled streets. Have you ever petted the Dijon owl?

Then, the famous vineyards of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune where you can taste Burgundy wines and discover the cellars and castles of the region.

The Châteauneuf-en-Auxois castle is also an unmissable place to visit with its medieval architecture and its panoramic view of the surrounding area.

Finally, don’t miss the town of Auxerre, famous for its Gothic cathedral and its preserved historic center.

What monuments can we discover in Burgundy?

The region of Burgundy is rich in historical and architectural monuments.

It is home to numerous Romanesque and Gothic churches such as Fontenay Abbey, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cities of Dijon and Beaune are full of magnificent historic buildings such as the palace of the Dukes of Burgundy, the Philippe le Bon tower and the Hôtel-Dieu, a former hospital turned museum.

In the vicinity of Cluny is the eponymous abbey, famous for its impressive size and Romanesque architecture. Finally, Guédelon Castle, under construction since 1997, is an ambitious project to reconstruct a medieval fortified castle using period techniques and materials, offering a unique experience to visitors.

The castle of Bazoches:

Nestled in the greenery of a large park in the heart of Morvan, the Château de Bazoches contains many memories of Marshal Vauban. His office, the map room, his bedroom and its splendid view of Vézelay… still resonate with this extraordinary personality.

Follow in his footsteps. In Avallon, in Quarré-les-Tombes…

The Hospices de Beaune are undoubtedly one of the emblems of Burgundy. This prestigious monument built during the reign of the Duke of Burgundy Philippe the Good is an architectural masterpiece. It’s hard to imagine that such a monument was used as a hospital. And yet, that was indeed its vocation until it became a museum… A great stopover for all tourists visiting Beaune and on the Grands Crus route.

The MuséoParc Alésia:

Relive the history of the siege of Alésia in a fun and educational way at the MuséoParc Alésia! Go to Alise-Sainte-Reine, where the famous battle between Julius Caesar and Vercingétorix took place.

Museum, activities, guided tours will allow you to better understand the final episode of the conquest of the Gauls. Extend the discovery with a weekend in Auxois. This small Burgundian region has some lovely surprises in store!

The Guédelon construction site

For more than 20 years, an extraordinary adventure has been taking place in the heart of Puisaye, almost at the gates of Paris: the construction of a fortified castle using 13th century methods… A fantastic medieval project which mobilizes around fifty people craftsmen and takes you into the past. Incredible right?

Stone by stone, the castle takes shape before your eyes. A constantly evolving spectacle to see and rewatch, and a wonderful lesson in history, architecture, calculation, geometry…

Which villages to visit in Burgundy?

Burgundy is a French region rich in picturesque villages which are worth the detour.
Among the villages not to be missed, we can cite Vézelay, famous for its Romanesque basilica listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as for its cobbled streets and half-timbered houses. Beaune is also an unmissable village, known for its wine cellars, its Hospice and its medieval historic center.

Auxerre is another charming medieval town with a wide variety of architecture, while Châteauneuf-en-Auxois is a small fortified town perched on top of a hill, offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Other villages on the list to see include Noyers-sur-Serein, Flavigny-sur-Ozerain and Semur-en-Auxois. Each of these villages has its own unique charm, from ancient churches to limestone houses and bridges spanning peaceful rivers.

Remarkable viewpoint over the Morvan, Mont-Beuvray peaks at 821 meters.

It even allows you to see Mont Blanc in good weather. It’s also a great spot to watch the sunrise or sunset!

This site is also worth the detour for all the historical significance it bears. It is in fact the site of the establishment of the ancient capital of the Gallic people the Aedui, nothing less!

Vineyard in Burgundy, cellar visit and tasting of Burgundy in wine tourism

This is why has selected for you the best wine estates in Burgundy, the most beautiful cellars for tastings with passionate winegrowers and winegrowers! Come visit this vineyard during a wine tourism getaway, a wine discovery weekend or a simple visit to the region!
It is an inexhaustible source of discoveries and emotions. Although small (30,000 hectares), the Burgundian vineyard is in fact a mosaic made up of more than a hundred appellations, some no larger than a comfortable garden… This multitude of plots is known by a local term : Climates. This model of local viticulture became a UNESCO world heritage site at the beginning of July 2015.

Burgundy and its wines do not respond well to any simplification. However, we can point out that the wines are mainly white (60%) and made from two grape varieties: chardonnay (white) and pinot noir (red). There are also 5 major vineyards: Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, and Mâconnais. So many entities with strong characters.
