Caen overview

The imposing Norman town of Caen is one of Normandy’s most important cities. The home town of William the Conqueror, Caen was also vital in the Normandy landings of D-Day that brought the Second World War to an end. Of course, many visitors take flights to Caen to visit and commemorate its place in the D-Day landings. Reminders of this are the Memorial Museum and the Grand Bunker – Atlantic Wall Museum. The Normandy Beaches are also just a short distance away.

After your flight to Caen, you can wander through the town’s narrow streets which open suddenly onto tranquil parks and gardens and onto the marina, which the town huddles around. Explore the historic buildings, which were built from locally quarried cream limestone which complements their architecture.

Sitting on the rivers Orne and Odon, the university city of Caen has plenty to see and do during the day and a lively nightlife. Whilst you are here, stock up on some Normandy specialities like the Calvados brandy and their regional cheeses. Visit Caen Castle, started by William the Conqueror, and see both the Musee des Beaux-Arts and the Musee de Normandie. The former displays paintings from the 15th century to the present day and the latter contains the local history of Caen and Normandy, including a display of bridal wear and furniture. The castle is also a great sight, with its two huge walls which surround the inner buildings and two main gateways which guard the entrance. From the ramparts you can see over the Normandy countryside.

In contrast to the stern Norman architecture of the castle complex are the soaring Romanesque spires of the Abbaye-aux-Hommes and the Abbaye-aux-Dames, built by William and his wife, Matilda. Younger visitors will have a great day out at the Parc Festyland, with its themed areas such as the Middles Ages, Vikings and Pirates.
