CDG - Dijon by bus...but which one?

by rusty703

I've seen suggestions to take a bus from CDG to Dijon but no mention of which bus line. Any specific recommendations?

I'd be amazed if there is a bus from CDG to Dijon. Long-distance buses in France are extremely rare creatures. I certainly cannot find one.

Re: CDG - Dijon by bus...but which one?

by happyindijon

I agree with cubsur, no long distance bus to CDG. The best way is to take the TGV (6h30am on week days and later on weekends). Bon voyage!

Thanks for the suggestions pedmar :-)
Just want to add that from 5th July there is an extra TGV leaving Dijon at 17.09 to CDG. At last! You can book it already. You won't have to wake up so early!
And for those going to Dijon, you don't have to wait until 19h41, there is now a TGV leaving CDG at 11h16! Great if you can catch it!

Re: CDG - Dijon by bus...but which one?

by Couplesynergy

Guys when you say take a train from CDG to Dijon do you have to take a train from CDG to central Paris and then get a train to Dijon from there or is there a direct train from the Airport to Dijon? I have searched sites and can only find a train from Paris Gare Lyon to Dijon.

Travel Tips for Dijon

History - continued

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Dijon stands on Ouche river, in historical area of France and is the center of Burgundy. In the Vth century the German tribe of burgunds created the kingdom of Burgundy on Rhine with the center in Vorms. The duchy Burgundy, with the center in the city of Dijon was formed on a part of territory of kingdom in the IXth century. It was in vassal dependence from the French kings and per 1032-1361 belonged to representatives of a lateral branch of French dynasty Capets.
In the XIV-XV centuries the Burgundian dukes have actually transformed duchy into the independent state which became one of the strongest European powers. Its structure included Flanders, Artois, a county Burgundy, Enoy, Holland, Zealand, Namur, Brabant, Limburg, Luxembourg. Simultaneously these territories were a part of Sacred Roman empire.

Jacquemart the Bell-Ringer

by hquittner

Atop the South Bell turret of the Church of Notre Dame, behind the peculiar church facade, is a clock and four automaton figures. The figures are a “family”. In 1382 Philippe the Bold confiscated a clock with a mechanical bell-striking figure after the Battle of Courtrai. After much transport difficulty it was installed on the tower where it still stands. The people gave the figure the name Jacquemart ( a play on the words for a man striking). He has worked proudly ever since with his pipe in his mouth. Feeling that he was lonesome, a wife was acquired in the 17C (Jacqueline) then a son was born (1716; Jacqillinet and a daughter in 1881. The father has always struck the hour (big bell) and the wife the half-hour while the children do the quarter hours (smaller bell).Needless to say there is great local pride about this town function.

Darcy Gardens

by aquatic

These gardes laid out on different levels in the center of the town. Pompon's White Bear, as a guard, protects the garden. This sculpture brought fame to the sculptor from Burgundy. The garden dates back to the 19th century and reminds of an italian one.
Very luxurious setting in the center of Dijon, this park is a part of Owl walk. You can start or end your walk here.

Tomb of Philip the Bold.

by breughel

In 1381 Jean de Marville was commissioned to make a monumental tomb for Philippe le Hardi (Philip the Bold 1342 - 1404). He conceived the lay-out but the sculptural work was handed in 1385 to Claus Sluter and other stone carvers who came from Brabant. A Claes de Slutere van Herlamen appears on a list of stone carvers of Brussels around 1370-80.
In Dijon Sluter got absorbed by other tasks so that the works did not make much progress.
In 1404 Philip the Bold died in Halle, near Brussels.
The sculptural part of the tomb had still to be done! The son of Philip ordered Sluter to carve the sculptures within a period of four years. But there were 40 "pleurants" mourners to carve in alabaster and Sluter was aged and ill. It was finally his nephew and pupil Claus de Werve who carved most of the mourners.
The tomb was finished in 1410 and placed in the choir of the church of the Chartreuse of Champmol above the lead sarcophagus containing Philip the Bold.
Nearly 30 years were needed to make the tomb but what an artistic and technical feat.
The theme of the mourners has never found such an iconographic development, or such a diversity of expression to convey the feelings of mourning.

In 1793 the tomb was vandalized while standing in the cathedral St-Begnine transformed in "Temple of the Reason" under the Revolution.
It was restored in 1819 and finally installed in 1827 in the Room of the Guards of the palace of the dukes.

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

Tombeau de Philippe le Hardi.

C'est en 1381 que Jean de Marville est chargé de réaliser le tombeau de Philippe le Hardi. Il en conçoit l'ordonnance. Le travail de sculpture est confié en 1385 à Claus Sluter et d'autres tailleurs de pierre venus du Brabant. Un Claes de Slutere van Herlamen figure sur la liste des tailleurs de pierre de Bruxelles vers 1370-80.
Sluter est absorbé par d'autres tâches et le tombeau reste en chantier.
En 1404 Philippe le Hardi meurt à Halle, près de Bruxelles. La partie sculpturale de la tombe reste entièrement à faire! Son fils le duc Jean sans Peur charge Sluter d'exécuter les sculptures en quatre ans. Mais il y a 40 pleurants à sculpter et Sluter est âgé et malade. C'est finalement son neveu et élève Claus de Werve, qui sculpte dans l'albâtre la plupart des pleurants.
Le tombeau est achevé en 1410 et placé dans le chœur de l'église de la Chartreuse de Champmol, au-dessus du caveau où se trouve le sarcophage en plomb où repose le corps de Philippe le Hardi.
Il a fallu presque 30 ans pour réaliser ce tombeau mais quelle prouesse artistique et technique! Jamais le thème des pleurants n'a connu un tel développement iconographique, ni une telle diversité d'expression, pour traduire les sentiments de deuil.

En 1793 le tombeau fut vandalisé alors qu'il était entreposé dans la cathédrale St-Bénigne transformée en "Temple de la Raison" sous la Révolution. Il est restauré en 1819 et remonté en 1827 dans la Salle des Gardes du Palais des Ducs de Bourgogne.

Dijon, the home of Dijon Mastard

"Time traveling..."

You can walk through this town in one day. But it is charming and very cozy...
Old houses and buildings, especially in a center, are protected by government. This is why you can still walk around Dijon and feel like you traveled in time.
