Rennes: from Celtic settlement to bustling city

View monumental facades here and visit the impressive cathedral, but be sure to visit one of the trendy boutiques or hip restaurants. Be surprised by the versatility of this dynamic French city.
Dive into the history of Rennes
During a visit to Rennes you cannot ignore the history of the city. In the center of the place you are literally surrounded by history. View the brightly colored half-timbered houses, the monumental facade of the town hall and the impressive opera house. A city walk through Rennes will be characterized by the beautiful facades, idyllic streets and a friendly atmosphere. Of course, the city also has plenty of museums, where you can learn more about its history. For example, visit the Museum of Brittany. Did this journey through time make you hungry or thirsty? Then settle down on one of the cozy terraces and enjoy regional specialties. Did you know that the Breton are proud of the scallops from their region? In fact, these are considered the tastiest in the world. And you should definitely have tasted a glass of Chouchen, a honey liqueur, yourself.
Relax in nature
A city walk through the historic center, a visit to one of the many museums or an afternoon of shopping is of course wonderful. Nevertheless, it is good to know that you can also find plenty of nature in Rennes. If you want to escape the city for a while, a visit to Parc du Thabor is recommended. In this large park of more than ten hectares you will find a breathtaking rose garden with more than 2000 different varieties of roses! There is also a French garden, a botanical garden and an English garden. There is even a music kiosk and an orangery. Here you forget for a moment that you are in the center of the capital of Brittany. Rennes will certainly surprise you!
