While you're there

Rennes is the capital of Brittany region in France. The city of Rennes can be reached by the high speed TGV from Paris in 2 short hours. Rennes is the perfect base to visit other towns of Brittany, namely the Mont Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo. The city of Rennes is a dynamic city with over 50,000 students. The city has a rich architectural heritage, convivial restaurants and quality shops. When in Rennes, check street posters to track down a fest-noz – a time-honoured ball where generations meet to dance to traditional music and to drink and snack on authentic French delicacies. Take a night out to enjoy one of these rather than a nightclub and you’ll experience the real Rennes.


In the historic centre, explore the narrow, winding streets. You’ll discover colourful half-timbered houses dating back to the 15th century, the Cathedral Saint-Pierre and the city’s defensive heritage. In Place des Lices, is held the second largest food market in France every Saturday. Other notable landmarksin Rennes are: the two royal squares, the City Hall designed by Gabriel, the architect of Louis XV, the Parliament of Brittany, the Champs Libres Centre designed by Christian de Portzamparc, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Jardin du Thabor considered as one of the most beautiful French gardens, and the Saint-Georges swimming pool with mosaics designed by Odorico.

In Rennes you are most likely to have a taste of local specialities such as galettes and crêpes, pâtés, parlementins (pastries) and cider. If you are an amateur of fine cuisine, don’t miss the Festival Gourmand.

Rennes has plenty of markets to keep your roving eye occupied. Every Saturday the central food market in the Place des Lices near the Medieval Quarter sells huge varieties of French specialties. For good value clothes, games and make-up visit the Galleries Lafayette Mall. Between Place Sainte Anne and Place de la Mairie, there are numerous pedestrian street, ideal to shop.

  • "Enjoyable trip by train"    
    This was part of my train journey from Munich to Rennes, changing train at Paris. The train journey from Paris to Rennes was quite pleasant but there was hiccup in respect of the train journey from Munich to Paris. Initially I used my 2nd class railpass to buy a train ticket re Munich to Paris but due to a mistake got a ticket for 1st class seat. I went to raileurope office and informed them of the error. Told by staff there that the ticket was invalid, and that I needed to buy another ticket, to return the first ticket and then to request for its refund. I thus bought another ticket, returned the first ticket and asked for its refund. But days later, told by raileurope that the refund was refused. Found this very unjust, unfair and unreasonable to a genuine and honest customer, though this experience did not disturb my journeys in Europe.  
  • " Paris here I come !!!"    
    I am glad that I didn,t have to change at Rennes as there were hundreds of people eager to board the TGV there.My seat was at the end of the car so access to a toilet was easy and not far from the cafe/bar. The TGV,s started precisely at the minute on the timetable and arrived within seconds of the appointed time.I was very impressed. Thankyou Rail Europe. Rowland.  
  • "Rowland,s wanderings."    
    When I arrived at St. Malo I discovered that I was in time to take a TGV direct from St. Malo to Paris.I went to the ticket office and changed my ticket accordingly and was refunded 2 euros !!!! I got a window seat as well.  
  • "The way to travel"    
    We took the train from Paris to Rennes for a quick break out of the main city the train ride was great we went 2nd class but were able to meals and drinks from the dinning cabin and we had very comfortable seat for the trip. Well done.  
  • "Trains in France"    
    As usual train on time and good prices if you book well in advance  
  • "fine"    
    very nice train  
  • "Easy for non-french speakers"    
    The train was stationed when I reached the Quimper station. The screen showed which platform it was on. Once I reached the train they had a sign with the coach directions. This was what I was worried about. They had a station master to assist. The cabin and seats were comfortable and had good air conditioning. The journey was a comfortable one for sure from Quimper to Rennes.  
  • "Wang"    
    Very timely and comfortable to travel via euro rail.  
  • "Delightful trip to Paris"    
    Lovely, clean cushy 1st class seats with power outlets - great views out the windows- great way to travel.  
  • "Birthday Treat"    
    Very enjoyable trip, departed on time and arrived at the estimated time. Very comfortable and clean.  
  • "Comfortable regional train"    
    No issue during trip. Very good facilities as well for a regional train (compared to other EU regional train)  
  • "Very comfy TGV train trip"    
    Overall, good trip with no issue. Very convenient TGV train.  
  • "France trip"    
    The TGV is a nice train. Be aware that if you are using the Eurorail pass, you must have them punch/stamp your pass for each day of use before you get on the train. Find the place in the train terminal to get this done before your train is ready to depart. Also, we had a hard time booking seat reservations for one of the trips. There were plenty of seats but they system indicated there weren't. It took a lot of emails/complaints (long before we headed to France) to get them to figure it out and get our seats reserved. They showed available before I bought the Eurail passes and then immediately were not right after I bought them. Just be careful. The pass is worthless if you can't get a seat on the train you need.  
  • "Excellent coffee!"    
    Excellent coffee and friendly service in the kiosk on the train!  
  • "Ok "    
    Glad we had allocated seats .. had to ask someone to move out of our seat.
