Visit Brest

Located in Brittany and one of the westernmost cities in all of France, Brest sits in a sheltered position near the very tip of the Breton Peninsula. It’s not only a beautiful harbor, but it is also one of the most important French military ports as well. It’s on the continental edge of Europe, right on the Atlantic Ocean, and the community has spent the last few decades becoming a service-based community instead of an industrially based one. Are you ready to experience this incredible seaport that is steeped in history for yourself? If you are, then here are a few suggestions to consider during your time in this community.

The Primary Location to See? The Chateau de Brest

The importance of Brest as a strategic seaport has been known since the early 17th century and the history of this community revolves around its castle. The Chateau de Brest was built up for fortification over the course of two centuries until it fell under Nazi control during the second world war. Once the Allies regained the territory, the emphasis on storing armaments changed for this community and it began to focus on providing services.

A tour of the chateau is like stepping back into medieval times. The castle itself is well-preserved and the portions that needed to be restored or rebuilt were done very carefully to match up with the existing structures. From the top of the ramparts, you’ll be able to see this community stretch out before you and it is quite an amazing sight!

Because it is a seaport community with a military emphasis, the National Navy Museum is also one of the best museums of its type not only in the country, but in the world. It’s inside the castle and you’ll get a look how Brest has developed from the perspective of the sea as you linger along the exhibits. Finish off your time here with a great meal at one of the seafood restaurants along the pier and you’ll create a perfect day.

Why Not Learn the History of the Oceans Too?

Oceanopolis is a cool name for anything, but in Brest you’ll get to learn about the history of the planet’s oceans from the perspective of the scientist. It’s a showcase of the research that the French people have undertaken in the area of oceanography and there are three fun pavilions to explore that are devoted to the three primary marine ecosystems that are in play on the planet.

It’s a busy area, so plan for lots of people to be around. Shops and restaurants abound in this science complex and school programs are often running for children. Over 4 million people have visited this site since the year 2000 and for good reason: it is interesting, has opportunities for exhibitions and film, and lets you see over 10,000 different sea species in over 50 different tanks.

Are you ready to visit Brest soon? These essentials will help you get your trip started off on the right foot! From the sea to the chateau and everything in-between, this beautiful city has much to offer and the fresh perspective it provides will create a relaxing, enjoyable experience
