Amazing to see the buildings in this area, some 400-500 years old. Hard to imagine many of them have survived to this day thru weather, time, and war. A testament to the solid construction used many years ago and the styles still stand the test time. Simply incredible and absolutely worth a visit. Highly recommended.

For sections of old cities to have survived the ravages of time and war and still survive today is a miracle and a blessing. Walking thru this area gives you chills as you realize you are walking down streets and viewing structures in the same way that people did 500 years ago. For a bigger city like Dijon-this is a...

My daughters and I shared our first Kir at the restaurant in this building. Sat outside on a cool October day and enjoyed the view, the fountain, the people and the Kir.

We walked through the street as part of the Owl Trail, it is lovely to see the old houses preserved so that we and our children can see how things were built years ago. It is quaint and all the different architecture is amazing. Worth a walk through.

One of the most evocative cities in France and surely the most under-appreciated. The old town with its timbered walls is super - 100's of buildings, large and small dating from Medieval times, some still used as they were more than 500 years ago.

As old friend is good, the old town looks very nice. Unfortunately, my country renovates so many things. It's hard to find the old style buildings or streets in Korea. I hope my country governors learn from here how to preserve the old traditions. A street market was held when we visited. I didn't know what people were buying, it... More

Part of the Owls trail and full of old timber framed buildings, some with elaborately decorated windows and traditional Burgundian tiled roofs.

For sure if you go to Dijon, schedule 1/2 day for enjoying the street and the surrounding. Shopping sightseeing and just relaxing. Don't hesitate getting lost in small streets next to this one, passing from a street to another one through a building. After all you can just ask for the station direction once you want to find your way... More

We were staying in the Ibis Dijon Gare, about a 15 minute walk from this area. The street is very popular with visitors and shoppers, very level for wheelchair users. There are a lot of very interesting buildings but at the time we were there they were mainly closed
