You will find below information about coming to Dijon internationally.
The main airports for Dijon are Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly, and Lyon St-Exupery.
There is information about how to get to Dijon from these three by train. It can also be done by coach,
and some websites with information about these are provided.
By train :
Alternatively it is possible to come from European countries (including the UK) by train.
Some routes (from Italy, parts of Germany) will be direct. Others will require you to change in Paris - see the information
below. Trains from Paris leave from the Gare de Lyon (fast TGV, taking about 1hr 40 minutes) or Paris Bercy.
This is close to the Gare de Lyon but only has slow trains which are cheaper but take about 3½ hours.
By car :
You can also come to Dijon by car.
(Note that motorways in France (autoroutes) are toll routes and you need to have cash or a card available to pay for their use).
From Paris : There are two routes. The first (A6) is the fastest from the centre of Paris and Orly airport.
They are both about the same time if you come from the airport Charles de Gaulle
- Via the A6. You take the autoroute A6 south out of Paris (follow signs to Lyon) and travel on it south for about 2½ hours - then take the A38 signed into Dijon. Follow the road and it will take you straight to the city centre. This is the quickest route from the centre of Paris
- Via the A4, A5 and A31. The A4 will be signed to Reims. Before you leave the suburbs of Paris you will see signs to Troyes on the N104. Take this, and it becomes the A5. Continue to follow the A5 beyond Troyes and it merges with the A31. Take the A31 South (signed to Lyon and Dijon) until you get to an exit (sortie) for the D700, signed to Dijon. Take this, and it will lead you into the city. [If you take this route from Charles de Gaulle Airport take the N1104 out, following signs to the N2 ; take the N2 signed to Paris and Villepinte, then the A104 south to the A4. When you reach the A4 follow it towards Paris about 3 kilometres, then you reach the N104 south]
From the Centre of Lyon take the A6 to the North (signed Paris) and then continue driving until you get beyond Beaune, then leave the A6 onto the A31 north (signed to Dijon). Follow the A31 for about 25 kilometres, then take the A311 towards Dijon. This forms a ring road to the east and north of the city, and there are many exits into the centre.
From Lyon St Exupery Airport take the A432 north (signed to Paris). When you reach the A6 take that north, to Paris and Dijon and continue as above.
