By the road
Burgundy is a very accessible destination thanks to the many motorways crossing through it, as well as the famous National roads 6 and 7. You can therefore easily get to this region from Paris, via the French department of Yonne and from Lyon or Marseille via the southern entrance into Burgundy, the Saône-et-Loire. If you are arriving from Luxembourg or the Grand Est region of France, take motorway A31 until you reach the famous town of Beaune, which can also be reached along motorway A36 from Germany, Mulhouse or Besançon.

By car, or even motorbike or camper van, we recommend using the following websites to plan your journey before leaving:
The French railway company SNCF provides some great links with the towns of Burgundy, from which you can then reach the main tourist attractions.
There are for example frequent and high-speed services between Paris and Dijon, with a dozen trains per day.
>> It will take 1hr40 to get from the Gare de Lyon in Paris to the train station in Dijon. It is therefore quite easy to get to other towns or countries such as Lille in the north of France, Belgium or Germany.
There is also a direct service from Switzerland, and you can get from Lausanne to Dijon in just 2 hours
In addition to these train services, there are also regional services, with trains that are becoming more and more comfortable and faster, so you can easily (and in a more eco-friendly way) explore Burgundy. To find out more about train services in Burgundy, go to SNCF and Mobigo.
If you live quite far from Burgundy, you can of course come by plane, to the Dole-Jura airport (50 km from Dijon).
The airports in Paris (Roissy Charles de Gaulle and Orly), Lyon (Saint-Exupéry), Geneva and Bâle Mulhouse are also close to Burgundy, with motorways and high-speed train services nearby.
