Review of Rue Des Forges

Rue Des Forges
Ranked #6 of 70 things to do in Dijon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2014

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

From the train station, The Rue des Forges is an easy fifteen minute walk over flat terrain. It is a lovely area of old timbered houses, quaint shops, and cobblestone. It is a gem for historians and those who love photography.

The street marks the heart of Old Dijon. The great thing here is that you can quickly access other streets in the area, which are equally impressive due to a bit more solitude. Other places, such as major churches and he arts museum are also an easy walk. Many early mornings feature street vendors selling everything from clothes to fresh fruit.

If you have only a couple of hours, you can (from the train) take a nice walk through this area. It is lovely, walkable, and has a charm all it's own.

Strolling through Dijon old town is quite an experience. I wandered around from streets to streets early in the morning when there is not much crowd. I love the peaceful feeling and enjoy many wonderful old buildings every where I look. Definitely a destination that I would come back to visit in the future.

Circulating through the historic centre of Dijon is time travel.
Beautiful very well-preserved buildings provide a special charm to visitors.

Wow, was enlighted, luxurious, pleasure, check what happens so many years ago and how they lived at that time.
It is a journey to the past.
