Find the not to be missed sights of Rouen
Located on the banks of the Seine, the Docks 76 shopping mall offers a selection of 80 shops and restaurants that will delight the whole family. From Toys "R" Us to Swarovski, Adidas Originals, or Le Fabulous Shaman, a Rouen brand that was launched in 2013, it’s a true city within the city that welcomes you. The Docks 76 project is part of a drive to develop the Luciline district to create a dynamic and pleasant center area in Rouen. It’s also the first shopping center to receive environmental certification. Apart from stores, the Pathé multiplex moie theatre shows mainstream films in its 14 theatres, some of which have giant screens. An interactive video game room is also available there. For the little ones, there is a kids’ corner. To be able to shop in peace, you can also borrow a stroller. Before going back to you Campanile hotel Rouen Mermoz, you can stroll along the quais of the Seine or play a round of pétanque in the Parc de la Presqu'île Rollet, where there’s also a play area for children.
A garden of Eden on the South Bank, the Rouen Botanical Garden is the preferred place of families and plant enthusiasts for taking a stroll. It features over 8 hectares of a wide variety of plant species and is a playground for children. It’s also a space dedicated to science since the park has the largest collection of fuchsias in France and several seed stores. Adults as well as children can try out the workshops. These will teach you how to design a garden, prune trees and how to touch or even taste certain plants. A guide of the garden is also available. In the garden, flowers are interspersed through the soil and fill the air with fragrance. Roses, chrysanthemums and rhododendrons grow alongside peacocks, ducks and water turtles that walk around freely. A greenhouse nearly 170 years old overlooks ponds and under its glass roof, it houses plants from arid areas and carnivorous plants. Before going back to your Campanile hotel Rouen Sud Zenith Parc Expo or Campanile hotel Rouen Mermoz, take time, from the park, to look at the honey-producing garden. This is your chance to become familiar with the work of bees and better understand the importance of their role in an ecosystem.
