We came across this gem of a location rather by accident, as we passed by on the way to our holiday accommodation. The garden is a haven of peace, and we were fortunate to see it in mid-summer, when the place was a riot of...More

This small arboretum and park is located across the road from the rear of the Dijon train station. There were a number of peaceful spots to sit throughout, a "Hotel Des Abeilles" (Bee Hive House), and a meandering stream running through it all. A natural...More

A garden with different types of roses and plants. It has a small water stream and playgrounds for kids to play and enjoy their time. It's like an open flowers museum where you can enjoy different nice scents and colorful roses and trees.

You can walk to these lovely gardens from the heart of old town Dijon in about 10-15 minutes. If you follow the "Moses" Owl Trail, the Owls will lead you here as well. The gardens are free, as are all of the museums in Dijon....More

Maybe it was the time we visited (early June) but the garden was lacking in flowers. There is a rose garden that had some roses in bloom and we saw some areas with poppies but there were very few flowers. We have visited gardens in...More

A pleasant area just outside the main city area of Dijon. A formal planted area, the museum of natural history and many other surprises can be found here. Take it in as part of one of the additional loops of the owl trail and you...More
