The Burgundy canal - Tourism in the Côte-d'Or

Built between 1775 and 1832, the Burgundy canal allows to join the Saône and the Yonne rivers. 242 kilometres in length, the canal features 189 locks! It is in Pouilly-en-Auxois, the Côte-d'Or, that the Burgundy canal goes through one underground passage of 3333 metres long to cross the watershed between the Rhône and the Seine rivers.

Crossing beautiful landscapes, the Burgundy canal is a very pleasant waterway for barges.

The Burgundy Canal Bicycle Path, 227 kilometres long, which takes the old towpath from Migennes in Yonne to Dijon in Côte-d'Or, is great for lovely excursions on foot or by bicycle.
