Dijon train station: practical information

The station was destroyed in 1944 by the German army due to its strategic position, then rebuilt in 1962. Situated on the Paris-Lyon to Marseille Saint-Charles line, Dijon station is part of the SNCF network for the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. Also known as “Gare Foch”, it is a bifurcation station at the centre of a railway node served by the regional TERs and TGVs, which serves the large French cities (Paris, Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Marseille, Nice, Lille, etc.) and Switzerland. With around 6 million passengers per year, Dijon-Ville is now the principal station in Dijon, and is well placed at the level of national railway transport.
