See it, drink it and eat it in Auxerre!
Visiting Auxerre with OUIBUS means going back in time. More than a thousand years old, Saint-Germain abbey invites you into its crypts to admire some of the oldest mural paintings of France… before heading back to the surface to watch the light filtering through the famous stained glass windows of the Gothic Saint-Etienne cathedral.
Whatever you do, don’t miss strolling through the city centre where you can taste local delicacies such as boeuf bourguignon, gougères (choux pastry filled with cheese) and delicious Burgundy wines, all under the watchful eye of the old Clock Tower. It doesn’t just tell the time – an extra set of hands shows the movements of the sun and the moon as well.
Because Auxerre is first and foremost a destination for nature-lovers! After visiting the Museum, which houses no fewer than 140 000 specimens of natural history, head outside for some fresh air! Wind your way through the city’s green areas and cycle along the river Yonne, where you can also take a dip in the water or rent a canoe. Can you imagine a better place to spend a lazy afternoon? And when it’s time to leave, don’t worry: OUIBUS will get you home on time, even if you’ve become as laid-back and slow as a Burgundy snail.
