A French commune in the Saine et Loire department, Le Creusot is best known for its ironworks in the 1800s and home to the largest steam hammer in the world in 1876. Today Le Creusot is an interesting destination for anyone interested in industrial history.
Le Creusot Rail Station is officially known as Le Creusot Montceau Montchanin TGV' and serves both regional and high speed TGV trains. The town is just 1 hour 20 minutes from the Gare de Lyon in Paris. There is an older station that serves older, slower trains so be sure to specify the TGV station when buying tickets.
Passengers can expect facilities such as public toilets, telephones, a waiting area, snack kiosks and car rental booths. The station has taxis and shuttles for runs into the city centre.
There are several parks to entertain visitors, including the Parc Touristique des Combes that appeals to families with young children and a go cart circuit for older speed demons. History buffs and outdoor enthusiasts will find lots to see at the Hotel La Petite errerie, once a glassworks for Marie Antoinette and later the home of the Schneider family, the town's most prominent citizens and owners of its famous ironworks.
While you can explore Le Creusot and the surrounding region of Burgundy by train, bus, canal boat or bicycle, the most convenient way to see it is by rental car. Book a hire car online with us in advance for the best price.
