Montbard, the perfect place to learn about nature

Montbard is a little town of 5.500 inhabitants, located in Burgundy, in the south-eastern France. Montbard has a long history, stemming from Antiquity, and is now famous for its foundry set up here since this 18th century.

The intendant of the botanical garden in Paris under Louis the XV, Buffon, was born here at the beginning of the 18th century and was very important to his city. He converted an old castle of the Burgundy’s dukes into an beautiful park. Visiting this park’s orangerie, you will discover the naturalist’s work.

You can also explore the museum of Fine Arts at the same place. Having a walk around this park you will find the two 14th century towers, the Ste Urse Church, the ramparts and other ruins of the old fortress.

Do not miss the great foundry that Buffon set up here, which is now a private historic monument that can be visited.

  • "Train a la mode"    
    I really enjoyed my first TGV trip and what is even more: on first class. Amazing speed and comfort at a very attractive price. It was an excellent experience!  
  • "Fast, quiet and smooth"    
    Yeah, the title says it all, unbelievable. Inside,the train is still a train, not the orient express if you know what I mean, but wow, the technology to run so fast and you don't notice it at all. The stations are something else entirely. Not many places to sit and they announce the track about 10-15 minutes before. One (Dijon) had stairs to climb, not easy with bags to carry. The information staff are very nice and very helpful.  
  • "Montbard to Paris EASY"    
    What an easy quick way to get into the heart of Paris and back to Burgundy in one day!
