Dijon by bike/a velo

by Gengo

Bonsoir,

I am planning a day trip to Dijon and I would like to visit some wineries or small towns nearby by push bike. Does anyone know whether this is possible, ie are there any bike paths and wineries within 20-30 kilometres of Dijon?

Je ferai un voyage a Dijon pour un ou deux jours et j'aimerais visiter des vignobles ou un autre petit village, préférablement du moyen âge, a vélo. Est-ce vous savez s'il est possible de le faire? Je veux savoir s'il y a des pistes de vélo et/ou des vignobles a court distance de Dijon (entre 20 et 30 kilomètres).

Thank you!

Merci d'avance!

On the road between Dijon and Beaune (N74-30 km) you will find scores of wineries, including some of the most prestigious wines in the world (Romanée-Conti, Chambertin etc). You will go through many villages including Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée, Nuits St Georges etc.

I can't remember if there is a speicif bike path but you shoudl be able to cycle easily along the road.

You will find this quite enjoyable.

Dijon is on the Canal de Bourgogne and canals have tow paths that usually provide easy motortraffic-free cycling. Chateauneuf-en-Auxois west of Dijon would be slightly more than 30kms from Dijon but the chateau and the countryside is worth the ride & one often sees orgainized groups cycling the tow path to visit. (no wineries of which I'm aware)

I have no idea what a "push bike" is, but presuming it is an ordinary (to me) bicycle that you pedal, there is a path along the Burgundy Canal. The canal goes directly through Dijon so you should have no trouble finding it. If you bicycle west toward Chateauneuf, the bike path goes through gorgeous countryside. At Dijon it is pretty much a combination of the Ouche River and Burgundy Canal. The path appears to start around Talant on the edge of Dijon. We've only explored it in the Chateauneuf area so I can't tell you where to start in Dijon. Perhaps someone else where can give you directions . . . or someone at the Tourist Office.

There is another bike path south of Beaune that might have more vineyards along it. You can pick it up at Chagny and head southwest toward St. Leger along the Canal du Centre. This isn't as long but you would be stopping at wineries anyway. ;^)

There is a lot of information at http://www.burgundytoday.com/sporting-activities/cycling.htm

You can also put in a route on Michelin.com and choose bicycle on the menu. They will give you a little map (click on it to change the route) and written directions along with the distance. http://www.viamichelin.com/

Have fun.

Travel Tips for Dijon

Dijon

by Lilasel

Dijon has many sights that are a constant source of delight. This is an infinitely beautiful town which gets its charm from the past and from the wit and wisdom of those who bring it to life. Dijon passed through successive armed conflicts unscathed, which explains the richness of its architectural heritage today !

The Chablis and the...

by piccolina

The Chablis and the Beaujolais vineyard : they are near the town of Auxerre, are half-way between Dijon and Paris. They are spread over the hill-slopes on either side of the pretty valley of the river Serein.

Museum of Fine Arts - St John sleeping.

by breughel

Among the remarkable sculptures on display at the Museum of Fine Arts most amateurs will range this "Saint John sleeping" which is a work of art one cannot forget. Anybody aware of his/her two thousand years cultural roots will understand the emotion generated by the sleeping St John at the Mount of Olives.
The sculpture of lime wood from about 1515 is attributed to Martin Hoffmann who worked in Basel. It was probably part of a larger composition about the "Prayer of Christ at the Mount of Olives". A work on the same theme with a sleeping St John exists at the church of St-Sebald in Nuremberg carved by Veit Stoss in 1499.

======================

Le musée des Beaux Arts de Dijon contient quelques sculptures qui accrochent le regard et ne s'oublient pas. Ce Saint Jean endormi en bois de tilleul, attribué à Martin Hoffmann de Bâle, sculpté vers 1515, est une œuvre extraordinaire par l'émotion qu'elle suscite en toute personne ayant conscience de ses racines culturelles remontant à deux mille ans.
Il est probable que cette sculpture faisait partie d'une composition représentant "La Prière du Christ au Mont des Oliviers". Une œuvre sur le même thème avec un Saint Jean dans la même posture existe dans l'église St-Sebald de Nuremberg sculpté par Veit Stoss en 1499.

Around Dijon

by PierreZA

About 20-30 km from Dijon you can visit Gevrey-Chambertin. Fixin and Brochon. Although so close to Dijon, it is a total different atmosphere and experience. These village are very representative of the Burgundy wine region, with vineyards, wine-tasting cellars etc.
You can visit my place on Burgundy for more info.

The Splendors of a Medieval and Renaissance Power

by hquittner

"More Than a Day"

We only allocated a full day to Dijon on our exploration of Burgundy and it rained most of that day. This drove us into spending most of our time indoors at the Palace of the Dukes and Estates-General of Burgundy and to the Beaux Arts Museum. Luckily it did not rain on the preceding afternoon as we arrived and stopped at the Chartreuse de Champmol in the northwest outskirts of the city, where we feasted our eyes on the masterpieces of sculpture by Claus Sluter, arguably the greatest works before Donatello. (The greater of the two elaborate monuments there, the so-called "Well of Moses" is covered by protective glass and iron barriers which make for both visual and photographic difficulties, but the experience is still worth the trouble).

"Why is Dijon Neglected?"

As we began to review our experiences of long ago, we have become puzzled about why the treasures of Dijon are so superficially described in VT. It is a large city and Burgundy was both powerful and the seat of much artistic activity. It is certainly more than old houses, mustard and nearby vineyards. We will try to show what we found. And we spent little enough time there too.
