General Impressions of Dijon

The French city of Dijon is famous for its strong mustard that comes in all kind of flavors. As a souvenir, you can buy a set with 10 different mustards from the city. It is available in specialised shops and the market hall.

Dijon is a large city with many churches, fountains, museums, historical wooden houses and excellent restaurants. We were impressed and fully enjoyed it.

  1. This place looks a bit dark and foreboding. But then in your later pictures, it cheers up a bit. Still, I am guessing nothing modern here. We eat Dijon! So I am interested in this post. LOVE the building with the colorful bricks, it is so pretty. And your nighttime shot is beautiful!!

  5. Ik bezocht deze mooie stad, ik denk in 2012. Die fontein was er dan nog niet, of ik herinner ze niet. Voor de rest wel herkenbare beelden van een mooie stad.

  6. Remarkable captures you have here. I've seen some of these views before from my daughter's own captures when she was there! Just lovely.
