Why are so many people moving to Dijon?
Dijon is one of the most culturally-rich, interesting and romantic places in Europe! It also has a high standard of living, a rapidly growing economy, and some excellent schools. The most common reasons why people move to Dijon include:
The rapidly growing economy
Dijon is the capital of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region and an important business centre. The city has a number of very strong industries, including food-making, tourism and manufacturing. It also has a low unemployment rate and high level of productivity compared to most cities in France. If you are looking for a beautiful French city that still presents many economic opportunities — Dijon is the perfect choice.
The diverse and beautiful architecture
Dijon has retained many historical buildings from the last millennium including buildings from the Capetian, Gothic and Renaissance periods. Many home owners live in houses that were built hundreds of years ago. Buildings in Dijon often feature Burgundian polychrome roofs, glazed terracotta tiles, and geometric patterns. They are really quite beautiful and add to the romance of the place.
The incredible culture and amazing history
Dijon is an ancient city which can be traced back to the Neolithic period. Famously, Dijon was home to the Dukes of Burgundy between the 11th and 15th Centuries. During this period, the city was incredibly powerful and wealthy. It was also an important location for the arts and science discoveries. This rich history explains why the city is packed with so many historical sites and beautiful buildings.
Dijon remains a cultural highlight in France, with many art galleries, museums, and concert venues in the city. Wine culture is also prominent in the area, with dozens of vineyards to visit near the city.
The glorious food!
Dijon doesn’t just produce some of the best food and wine in the world — it actively celebrates it! It holds the International and Gastronomic Fair every autumn — an event that attracts thousands of people to the city. Many world-class chefs are attracted to Dijon, so it is easy to find excellent food at a restaurant or cafe.
The great schools
Like most cities in France, Dijon has very high quality public and private schools. Students attending school in France tend to have better educational outcomes compared to other OECD countries, which is great news if you are moving to Dijon with your family. French schools tend to focus on languages, the arts, mathematics and science.
Attending school is compulsory for children between the ages of six and 16. Students can also attend 1 or two years of kindergarten before the age of six. State education is free for all French citizens.
Some of the best schools in Dijon include:
