Dijon is the capital of France’s Burgundy region, which is famous for its wine, gastronomy, and history. Dijon itself is an important economic and cultural center, with a preserved historic core that’s a designated UNESCO heritage site. The best bet for running in Dijon is the loop around Lake Kir, which can be added to with nearby canal paths. We’ve also designed a ‘runseeing’ tour of Dijon, which hits many of the city’s highlights along wide, grand avenues.
