Self-guided Walking Tour from Beaune to Cluny 

This route coincides with what was known as 'German Way of St. James' or the 'Hungarian Way of St. James' to Santiago de Compostela. Apart from the many historical associations, this is of course a wonderful wine route - walking from village to village, following hillside paths that cross the famous wine 'crus' of the “Côte de Beaune” and the “Côte Chalonnaise”, including Pommard and Chassagne-Montrachet, and enjoying beautiful scenery traced with stone walls. A highlight is completing the journey at one of the great places of pilgrimage - Cluny.
