Verdun-sur-le-Doubs is a commune in the Saône-et-Loire department in the region of Bourgogne in eastern France.

It is located in southern Burgundy 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 it's 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.
