Auvergne Tourism

Auverge is that rocky, volcanic wonder of the Massif Central.

Breathtaking views are afforded from Puy-de-Dome, an extinct volcano peaking at 1,465 metres above sea level.

This is hiking territory at its best.

If you're in Paris before you visit Auvergne, be sure to pop in at La Maison de l'Auvergne (194, bis rue de Rivoli - 75001 Paris) to see the region on show.

Coming from the Gorges of Allier, from Vichy, la Chataigneraie or Clermont-Ferrand, the Auvergnats gather together in Paris to share their passion for their own region; to represent their regional specialities through different events, food and wine tastings, presentation of tourist products and bookings of promotional vacations.

Bourbonnais, in northern Auvergne, was the birthplace of the Bourbon dynasty of French Kings. The many chateaux and priories stand witness to its royal past.
