Welcome to Dijon
To make the most of this 24-hour break and be sure not to miss anything, ask for your Dijon City Pass at the Dijon Métropole Tourist Office. This pass is valid for over 30 attractions and sights of the Burgundy heritage. So opt for Dijon and enjoy a slow-tourism experience between heritage, gastronomy and nature.

For the ultimate Dijon experience, in addition to the City Pass, we opted for a mustard-making workshop. We are in Dijon, after all!
Our recommendations for lunch
Bike ride between lake and gardens
After a delicious Burgundy meal, we decided to use the bicycles included in the City Pass. We headed for Lake Kir via the Arquebuse gardens and the Ouche promenade. A deep breath of fresh air in a bucolic setting just a stone's throw from Dijon centre.
There are several parks and gardens in Dijon, including Arquebuse and the Darcy gardens right in the city centre, an easy place to enjoy a nature break where you'll be greeted by the famous statue of the Bear of Pompon.
Places to visit by bike
Pick up your bikes from the station, at the DiviaVéloPark.
