MigennesRelevant people concerned with waterways and tourism throughout Burgundy met at Migennes to declare the 2013 season ‘open’ as of 16th March.

The situation for the waterways – the River Yonne, Canal de Nivernais, Canal du Centre, Canal de Bourgogne – looks good. Water reserves are at 90% level or better.

It is estimated that the waterways tourism brings in 45 million euros p.a in direct and indirect contributions to the Burgundian economy.
