Don't get me wrong - it's not hard to find. It's in the middle of the city and it's impossible to miss. But if you're standing on the wrong side of the Palace, the structure will look unimpressive and bland. That's because you're only seeing...More

We did not make it to all of the sites on the Owl Trail but this was the most spectacular of those we did see. Wonderful artwork and historical displays. I highly recommend visiting the Ducal Palace if in Dijon.

Part of this museum is being redone, but it's still a great place to walk through and spend an hour or two. Excellent variety of items to view. Beautiful building too.

Don't visit on a tuesday, because that's their closing day. Otherwise a very nice museum and place to walk.

Great buildings but also of great historic value for mankind. Don't miss the huge sign in a hallway with a precursor of The Universal Human Rights "Declaration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen".

Gives an overview of the evolution of the different arts in the middle age (really splendid altarpiece triptychs). Graves of the Ducs de Bourgogne are a gem. A must.

We especially enjoyed seeing the area at night with the lights and fountains. A great area for cafes and restaurants.

Any visitor to Dijon is likely to see the Ducal Palace, and be impressed with its immense size and impressive architecture - you really can't miss it. The interior includes many different buildings, some now used for municipal purposes, but including the interesting art gallery....More
