It is located in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté at the confluence of the Doubs and the Saône in the Bresse plain, near Beaune and Chalon-sur-Saône.
It is a very old settlement and played the role of fortified place at the French kingdom frontier during several centuries.
Today Verdun-sur-le-Doubs is an agricultural and tourist center well known for fishing, river boating and good eating. The pôchouse is the local dish with different types of river fishes cooked with dry Burgundy white wine ("Bourgogne aligoté") and cream.
In the Second World War Verdun-sur-le-Doubs was situated on the Demarcation Line. In 1995 sixteen communes, followed shortly by four others, were united to form the Community of Communes of the Trois Rivieres (CC3R).
