Auxerre Mini Guide

Located in Burgundy France, Auxerre is a historical city with much to see and do for the visitor. It is also a great base to get out and see other parts of France once you have hired a car. It is only 15 minutes away from the world famous winemaking town of Chablis and equidistant from Paris and Dijon, both of which are about 160 kilometres away by car. To get to those cities use the A6 motorway and take the A26 Troyes-Bourges motorway junction. Auxerre is also only 20 km from Pontigny Abbey, 45 kilometres from St Fargeau Castle, 60 kilometres from Vezelay Basilica and 80 kilometres from Troyes.

This historically protected town is an interesting place to visit, the cathedral dominates the skyline and a range of major churches are found throughout the historic town.  Local food for a picnic can be picked up at the ‘hypermarche’ LeClerc, located on the northeast side of the river shortly after crossing the Rue du Pont. The city is small enough to walk around taking in all of the wonderful sites in a short space of time.

Travelling to Auxerre
The closest major airport to Auxerre is Chalons Vatry Airport, however many visitors from the UK will tend to fly in to Paris Orly Airport, which is located approximately 158 kilometres away. It is possible to pre-book your hire car, which will then be ready and waiting for you when you arrive at the airport. 

Top Attractions
  • The cathedral Saint-Etienne was initially built in the 11th century and continued to be modified up until the 16th century. It is an authentic and imposing gothic style cathedral with beautiful stained glass windows. 
  • The Abbey of Saint Germain also attracts plenty of visitors. Part of the building is open as a museum dedicated to the history of the region.
  • The narrow streets lead you to some wonderful town squares, which are best experienced from the café window while enjoying a cup of a coffee. 
  • Go for a drive in your hire car and explore the village of Chablis, where you can experience wine tasting at the Burgundy vineyards to the east of Auxerre.
