Le dernier week-end d'octobre, le village de Saint-Léger-sous-Beuvray (village le plus proche de Bibracte côté Saône-et-Loire) accueille sa traditionnelle foire aux marrons.

La traversée du village est interdite, et les véhicules doivent prendre une déviation.
Il est donc conseillé de prévoir une demi-heure de trajet en plus pour accéder au musée depuis la Saône-et-Loire.


Coming to Bibracte

Bibracte is located in Burgundy, in the Morvan Regional Nature Park, on the border between Saône-et-Loire and Nièvre. The museum is located 4 km from the town of St-Léger-sous-Beuvray (Saône-et-Loire), at the foot of Mount Beuvray, on the D3.

By car

By the A6 motorway, Bibracte is 3h40 from Paris (exit 22: Pouilly-en-Auxois then Autun) and 2h20 from Lyon (exit 26: Chalon-sur-Saône Sud then Le Creusot, Etang-sur-Arroux).

Moving around the archaeological site

By car

From 4 July to 28 August 2022, access to the archaeological site via the D274 road is forbidden to motorised traffic and bicycles during the museum's opening hours (10am / 7pm).

This measure, taken for safety reasons inherent to this period of high visitor numbers, also allows the preservation of the remains and a peaceful visit for pedestrians. The children can thus run around peacefully, and our guides can make themselves heard without raising their voices.

During the rest of the year, or between 7pm and 10am in summer, you can access the site with your vehicle or by bicycle.

En navette de bus

Du 2 juillet au 28 août 2022, pendant la période d’interdiction d’accès aux véhicules personnels, une navette gratuite est mise en place. 

Elle circule tous les jours, de 10h15 à 18h45 (dernier retour du site). Le départ se fait à proximité du musée, et vous pouvez descendre et remonter dans le bus à votre gré, à différents endroits du site. Sa rotation a lieu toutes les 20 minutes environ.

On foot

You can also enjoy a nice walk to the top of the site by a path that crosses the forest from the museum.

It will take you about 45 minutes and a positive difference in altitude of 200 m. Be careful, it climbs on the first part of the path, so avoid going in flip-flops!

To make sure you don't miss anything, explore the site on foot by following one of the three signposted paths: the Centre-ville de Bibracte (Bibracte town centre, 5.9 km, green signposting) offers an overview of the main remains, the Chemin de Maraude (Marauding way, 3 km, yellow signposting) offers spectacular panoramic views of the Morvan, while the Tour des remparts (Tower of the ramparts, 5.2 km, pink signposting) takes you along the ancient Gallic fortification.

Need to find your way around the site? Use the La Boussole application to geolocate yourself and discover the remains hidden beneath your feet (only in french).

Things to know before you go

Plan your route

Bibracte's specificity is that it is located in the middle of nature, far from any large agglomeration.
In order not to be caught off guard, it is best to prepare your itinerary before setting off. The signposts may be enough to find us, but a map or a good GPS can't do any harm. This will allow you to calculate how long it will take you to visit us.

Put on your shoes

Bibracte is two hundred hectares of forest and sometimes stony paths.
If you wish to leave the most frequented paths, it is preferable to take good shoes.

Allow time

You know when you will arrive at Bibracte, you don't know when you will leave...
There are so many possibilities for activities, so many walks to do, so many grassy spots to rest on that it will be difficult to keep to your schedule. Plan ahead!


Le musée va faire l’objet de nouveaux aménagements à compter de la mi-juin. Une nouvelle salle d’exposition temporaire et ses annexes seront construites dans le sous-sol de la cour de service actuelle. 

Le plus gros des travaux de terrassement aura lieu de mi-juin à mi-juillet et risque de s’accompagner de nuisances sonores, plus ou moins prononcées selon les périodes.

Nous espérons votre compréhension et vous en remercions par avance.
