What's Auxerre Like?

Auxerre was once a major stop on the Burgundian wine route, but when the railway diminished the importance of river transport, Auxerre's significance declined. The river remains Auxerre's hub though, with the Pont Paul-Bert offering a great view over the city's rooftops. The Abbey of St. Germain is one of the highlights of Auxerre, renowned for its crypt and frescoes dating from around 850. Construction on the cathedral of St. Etienne began in the 13th century but the building remains incomplete, although its original stained glass is impressive. The old quarter, stretching from the riverside to Place Surugue has an attractive collection of medieval buildings, notably the 15th-century clock tower. The Leblanc-Duvernoy museum is devoted to local tapestries and furniture. Auxerre hotels allow a leisurely exploration of this evocative Burgundian city.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Auxerre

Auxerre is off the main Burgundy tourist trails, so don't expect English to be understood everywhere. Take the time to learn a few versatile French phrases to get by in restaurants and cafes. Locals in Auxerre tend to congregate around the cafes and bars on the quayside and it is the hub of the city's social scene in the early evening. Although this part of Burgundy is not a place where you need to be chic, the Auxerrois dress nicely when dining out. Classic Burgundian cuisine makes extensive use of the local wines in famous dishes like boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin. Wild mushrooms, game and snails also feature heavily on Auxerre menus.
