Rennes: as historical as it is charming

If you want to discover northern France, book a flight to Rennes! Have a picnic in Parc du Thabor, explore the colourful, historical centre and relax at one of the many terrace cafés. Or sample a Galette-Saucisse, the local snack, at the lively outdoor market Marché des Lices. Brittany’s capital is not likely to disappoint you!

Cathedrals and half-timbered houses

Rennes’ old town centre is full of half-timbered houses; take a stroll down Rue du Chapitre and Rue Saint-Saveur to admire their charm. Visiting Rennes Cathedral is a must. Its interior boasts magnificent stained-glass windows and a beautifully decorated arched roof. Do you love museums? Les Champs Libres is Rennes’ ultimate cultural centre, where you’ll find the Musée de Bretagne, a 6-floor library and the Science Centre including the Planetarium. Rennes is the ideal destination for weekend holidays, but also as the starting point for a longer vacation in France. Treat yourself: book a flight to Rennes now!

Mythical and fairytale-like

One of France’s most extraordinary attractions, Mont-Saint-Michel, is only an hour’s drive from Rennes. Spectacularly situated on a rocky island, this town is also called the ‘Wonder of the Western World’. In the old days, it could only be reached by foot. But despite the present-day road, the spring tides are still a guaranteed spectacle. Prefer being in nature? West of Rennes, you’ll find the mythical Brocéliande Forest, also known as Paimpont Forest, with endless pathways to wander about. It’s considered the cradle of many legends, particularly those of King Arthur and his illustrious Knights of the Round Table. A true fairytale forest!
