Train Dijon → Strasbourg
Duration 2h03 - From $24
Pardon me, but we ask you don’t pass on Dijon This word "Dijon" conjures up the image of a pseudo-sophisticated old man in the back of a limo, asking a passerby if he has a certain mustard. Get this out of your head. The historic capital of the Burgundy region will allure and captivate all of your senses, just like a fine Dijon mustard. Use your France Rail Pass, or Eurail France-Switzerland Pass and easily arrive into Gare de Dijon-Ville from Paris, Lyon or Lausanne in less than two hours thanks to the high-speed TGV. A few blocks from the rail station is the Dijon tourist office at 15 Cour de la Gare near place Darcy. Here you can get information and a brochure on where to pick up the "Owl's Trail." This self-guided tour brings you to most tourist sites in Dijon. The route is marked on the sidewalk by brass tiles featuring a little owl. When you come to a point of interest there is a number marked on the ground. Look up the number in your brochure for more information on that particular sight. (All cities should work like this.)

Where smart people learn to love Alsace Capital of Alsace, home of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and less than 2.5 hours from Paris by TGV, Strasbourg beckons with a blend of history and modernity. The Grande Île, Strasbourg's historic city center, is a UNESCO world heritage site. This was the first time such an honor was placed on an entire city center. There are incredible sights to see in just this one area : The Palais Rohan, 500-hundred year old churches including the Cathédral de Nôtre Dame (the tallest medieval building in Europe) and its famous astronomical clock. If you're lucky to be here around the holidays, the Strasbourg Christmas market surrounding the church has been an annual event since 1570. The neighborhood known as Petit France sits along the banks of The Grand Île. Famous for its medieval, black and white timber-framed buildings, the renowned Maison Kammerzell is the city's best example on Place de la Cathédrale in an area formerly belonging to the Holy Roman Empire.

"The trip to Colmar was very comfortable. The train departed and arrived on time. Except the change was a bit rush "
