Where you can see the 69m long Bayeaux Tapestry depicting William the Conqueror's invasion of England
One of the most extraordinary things you will see. The details are dazzling. It is D-Day in reverse, almost thousand years earlier.
If you’re interested in the telling of history, this is a must see. The museum brings tapestry to life through great audio guide and there’s a good guide for kids too. Good for a rainy day!

“Almost 20.000 German soldiers (among them also 17 year old boys) are buried here. It is a must-do to see the difference between this cemetry, and the American one. In all kind of ways fascinating.”

“Located only 10 min. from downtown Caen Festyland is the largest amusement park in Normandy. New attractions open each year such ERETIC for those who enjoy thrills, and VIKLAND for the younger crowd. KASKADE: round dinghies which climb to a height of over 15 m, descend over a course of over 60 m and then follow a route of more than 185 m of whirlpools and rapids. Picnic and self-service areas.”
