Important information and facts about Caen

Discover Caen with campstar

Caen is a beautiful harbour town in the north of Normandy. In its centre is the famous Château de Caen. This castle dates back to the 11th century and was built by order of William the Conqueror. It is perched on a hill above the roofs of the city.

There are also two wonderful monastery churches, Saint-Étienne and Sainte-Trinité. Both buildings date back to the Romanesque period. Another interesting sight in Caen is the multimedia war museum, which tells the story of Normandy during the Second World War.

The Orne River flows directly through the city. This river flows into the English Channel. Le Havre, another very pretty harbour town, is only 50 km away. A day trip to Le Havre in a campervan is definitely worthwhile.

The University of Caen has a long history. It was founded in 1432 by King Henry VI. Its coat of arms is decorated with a phoenix. There is also an art school that offers many interesting courses.

Culture plays a major role in the city. The Musée des Beaux-Arts has an important collection of paintings. Those who want to learn more about the history of Normandy from the Stone Age to modern times should visit the Musée de Normandie. Both exhibitions are located in the castle.

Among the most beautiful parks are the Jardin botanique and the Parc floral de la Colline aux Oiseaux. The lush green spaces are a great place to relax from the cultural program and shopping.

The weather in Caen

Sun, clouds and wind are always alternating in the city. Therefore, the climate of the city has a special charm. Even if it rains in the morning, the sun can shine in the afternoon. The bathing season begins in mid-June and ends in October. You can arrive by campervan from May onwards. Then the temperatures rarely drop below 15 degrees Celsius.

Temperatures in Caen for your campervan holiday

In summer, visitors can expect temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius. On the coast it is always a few degrees cooler. Spring begins earlier than in Germany, with apple trees blossoming as early as April. It gets much cooler from September onwards, which is when the low season begins.

You can travel to Normandy in a campervan without heating until the beginning of October. In winter it is too cold at night, although it is rarely less than 10 degrees Celsius. The best time to travel is from May to September.

How much rain to expect when renting a campervan in Caen

You have to expect rain all year round. But it never rains all day. After a few hours, the clouds usually disappear just as quickly as they arrived. For this reason, you should always be prepared for a downpour and have a waterproof awning for your campervan in your luggage.

Rent a campervan in Caen and visit the most popular attractions

Caen has many attractions to offer visitors. The main sights are the Abbaye aux Hommes Saint-Étienne and the Abbaye aux Dames Sainte-Trinité and the castle. However, the art museums and the great parks are also highly recommended.

Abbaye aux Hommes Saint-Étienne and Abbaye aux Dames Sainte-Trinité

These two monastery churches are built in the Romanesque style and are among the most beautiful churches in the whole of France. Saint-Étienne was the men's abbey and Sainte-Trinité the women's abbey. The women's abbey was founded in 1060 by Mathilde of Flanders. She was the wife of King William.

Architecturally, they are interesting because the ribbed vaults are considered to have paved the way for Gothic architecture. The ribbed vaults of stone replaced the old wooden ceilings. The lightly coloured sandstone from the region is world-famous because it can be worked very well.

The Chateau de Caen Castle

The medieval castle offers a beautiful view over the city. It is located in the centre of town on a small hill. Visitors can walk over the castle wall and enjoy the unique view.

Visiting the site is free of charge. The herb garden and the playground complete the offer. There are also two museums in the castle, but there is a charge for them. Guided tours are only offered in French and English, but some panels are also in German. The campervan can be parked directly under the castle in a multi-story car park.

Mémorial

The Mémorial shows the history of French Normandy. It commemorates above all Operation Neptune. In June 1944, the Allies landed in Normandy and liberated France from German occupation.

In addition, the European history of the 20th century is shown. The museum is very popular and is visited by over 600 000 people a year. Visiting a real bunker is very interesting. In addition, a Hawker Typhoon, an English fighter plane, which was used in the invasion, is on display.

Tip Rent a bike: There are very beautiful cycle paths along the English Channel. Tourists can rent very good and inexpensive bikes at the Cyclable bike rental, 32 Place du 36e Régiment d'Infanterie.
